To my readers: I am in the process of doing a massive update to the blog after a year-long hiatus. Stay tuned for images from Belgium, Scotland, Germany, Israel, and Chile!

Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Emily Berkson and I am a quarter-century old amateur astronomer, imaging scientist, wanna-be photographer, and weekend explorer. I was a professional student for a bit, but at the start of 2017 I entered the work force and started my career. As of early 2018, it’s going pretty well!

After obtaining a BSc in Astronomy from the University of Arizona in 2013, I moved to live and work in Hawaii for the better part of a year. I started the blog so friends and family could keep up with my experiences, and five years later I’m still moving and still writing, first as a graduate student and now as a software engineer. I’ve lived in Laurel/College Park, MD; Tucson, AZ; Hilo, HI; Rochester, NY; Los Alamos, NM; and St. Louis, MO, and travel further abroad every chance I get. I have a limited time to explore and experience most of these places, so I try to make the most of it, and this blog shows some of that! Please explore, and feel free to leave a comment or share a page!

  1. Like your introduction, comprehensive and flowing with interesting points. I overlooked this and ‘Favorite Images’ when I started reading your blog, better late than never. :o)

    • Hi Crystal!

      I’m sorry this is so belated, but you are more than welcome to use one of these photos on your article if you are still looking. If you do, could you send me a link when it is published? Thanks for visiting!
