My Childhood

Ronald Zincone

My Childhood

My passion for space started when I was a young boy around the age of 12. I still remember getting my first 50mm Tasco telescope as a Christmas gift. This telescope became my wormhole, tunnel, door or my holodeck to another world. It opened up nature and the cosmos to me and I became fascinated with everything astronomical, meteorlogical and photographic and, therefore, now I am an astrophotographer. I have always been a big star trek and star wars fan and I am a supporter of space travel. My main astronomical interests, both in observing and astroimaging, is with the moon and planets. My favorite planets have always been Mars and Saturn.

An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
