Sent in by John Axtell.
John Axtell has been GAS Secretary for two years and Observing Co-ordinator since January 04. John’s interest in astronomy began when he was a little lad of 7 or 8, at one time he was the youngest member of the Junior Astronomical Society (now known as the Society for Popular Astronomy). Teenage interests took over, but he retained a background interest in the subject. He became a born-again astronomer in 2001, his road-to-Damascus moment being the Total Eclipse of the Sun in Zambia.
