Guy Consolmagno Siteseeing with astronomer Guy Consolmagno

The astronomical sites I visit are not flashy but useful. For more detailed information about comets, astroids, and trans-Neptunian objects, which make up the heart of my research, I contact the Minor Planet Center at Harvard. The Vatican Observatory’s site is: vaticanobservatory.org.

When I am abroad, to keep in touch with what’s really going on back in America, I connect to the source that most people trust for their news: The Daily Show.

Comic book sites like this are fun and remind me that what I do is only slightly removed from magic. The artists are a husband-and-wife team, whom I first met at a science fiction convention.
