Why did I start this blog?

This blog will share my amateur astronomy interests and observations so I can learn more by taking time to reflect on what I have seen.

In addition to enjoying the sights above as a tourist, I am fascinated with the behavior of variable stars and have begun my personal variable star observation program.

My "Red Mountain Observatory" consists of one telescope on wheels emerging from my garage on clear nights. It is located under clear southwestern skies at 37.17N and 113.66W in Ivins Utah, elevation 3,088 feet.
