About Me

Hi and welcome to The Celestial Solar System website.

My name is Karl and I want to thank you for taking the time from your day to enjoy the stars and the night sky with me. You can contact me by clicking this link.

Would you like to turn your hobby or passion into a business like I did? Check out this website...All you need is BAM(Brains/Attitude/Motivation).

It really could be the first day of the rest of your life.


I grew up in the amazing times of the first steps on the Moon. I was riveted at 4yo watching on black and white tv as Neil Armstrong took the first steps on another world.

Back then you could look up at the sky and see millions of stars, or so it seemed. Living in Philadelphia then I used to spend time on the front steps looking at the Moon whenever there was an Apollo mission, trying to see the men walking on the surface.

I've always loved stargazing and finding and naming the constellations. And to this day on a clear night when I'm out I always look for some old favorites.

Orion, The Big Dipper, The Little Dipper, the Moon and planets. Good memories, simpler times.

Now between light pollution and air pollution it's hard to find all the stars but I keep looking.

Living in Virginia on the outskirts of DC I can still find the occasional dark spot and enjoy the sky.

Orion is still there as I remember him, 3 stars forming the belt as he stands tall in the cold night air. Did you know one star of his sword isn't actually a star?

I hope to awaken the love of the sky in others that I have with this site.

This site is about the enjoyment of the night sky. There's not a lot of exact science here as most of us stargazers are here for the simpler pleasures of backyard stargazing.

I hope you find it  fun and entertaining...
