NightSkySecrets has been established as an Astronomy Company since 2009,with Ian Maclean as the Principal Astronomer, but the history goes a little deeper than that.
Astronomy is a passion of Ian’s, developed from an early age with his first telescope and coming to fruition with the establishment of Gove Amateur Astronomers in 2002 in Nhulunbuy NT. Regular articles have been published at EzineArticles where Ian has reported on the latest happenings in the night sky and shared his experiences under the clear night skies of Arnhem Land NT and beyond.
His radio science program “The Science Show” on 106.9 GoveFM, has raised a whole bunch of Astronomy, Space Science, General Science & Environmental topics.
