Personal background
I'm originally from Alaska. Reside currently in Pueblo, Colorado. Have been interested in astrology since early childhood watching 'Star Trek'. Guess you could say I'm a soft core trekkie- don't get too many opportunities to watch Star Trek due to my current satellite programming and local t.v programming doesn't include 'Star Trek' series. When I was about 14-15 years old I was out in the morning about 4am helping a friend deliver the local newspaper. We spotted a comet in the east about 5am. The tail was about twice the size of the moon in appearance. I was mesmorized by the appearance of the comet-tail. We watched it til sun-up when it disappeared in the morning light. To this day I haven't been able to find out which comet it was. The date was approximately spring of 1968-69. Location of observance was Pueblo, Colorado. Comet was approximately 45 deg. up from eastern horizon. If anybody knows or can find out which comet it was please let me know. E-mail address is
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Got interested in SETI@home when I found it in a data-base search file by accident. Thought I'd give it a try to see if I liked it. Got hooked on it. Don't know if I'll be a finder of some intelligent signal but glad to know I'm helping others do the same thing. Yes, I do believe there is intelligent life out in the universe somewhere. They haven't decided to let us know where they are. I'll bet when that time comes it will set the whole world on its' heels. I'd like to be around when that happens. My wife knows that if some'ET' were to land in my yard and ask me to go with it into space that I'd probably jump at the chance. That's all for now. We, as a race, should continue attempting to contact other life in the cosmos. Think of all we could learn!!
