How Did You Find Singastro ?

I noticed since the ST article as well as the recent Jum, the number of people coming in here has increased. Show how plain vanilla publicity can do wonders.
Anyway, I'm curious to know how you gravitated here, so do feedback and allow us to gauge which is the best way to promote Singastro traffic.

Hi,
Does Yoda help anyone to find SingAstro?? :?:

Ifyou put Darth Vader, may be still acceptable... at least he'll said "Welcome to the dark side".. ha ha ha :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Have a nice day.

When all dark secrets are exposed, the truth will come to light! Nature abhors a vacuum, therefore all light rush into a black hole 8-)

Me? I found Singastro through net-surfing many other astro sites while toying with the idea of joining TASOS :)
Yet to submit TASOS membership application form... Singastro gravitated me to the 'dark side' faster than the speed of light ;)

I joined because my 4 years old son Junwei (nicknamed Jun Vader, twin brother of Darth Vader) wants to know all the dark secrets in the universe. With his force, we found this forum.

One fateful night, I laid on my balcony deck and gazed up at the sky to find many little stars winking at me from high up there. On impulse, I grabbed my star map and traced out a number of constellations - Draco, Ursa Major, Ursa Minor, Leo, Cassiopeia and a few others (I'd forgotten). This revived my interest in astronomy. :)
...clouds, please go away, let me see the stars today...
