I would truly describe myself as an amateur's amateur in Astronomy. My Ph.D, taken at
Melbourne University was in Cell Biology. My interest in Astronomy is quite recent and began when I was asked to write some chapters for a secondary school text book. I thought I would be given the section on Genetics, given my background, but to my surprise was asked to do the Chapters on Space. It was during this time that I first saw an Analemma photograph and decided that I would like to try one myself. The perfect opportunity arose when I started an Astronomy Club at Melbourne Girls Grammar Junior School (Prep to Year 6) where I teach.
