    Dear Astronomy Enthusiast,

    I discovered your website today. Very nice indeed!

    As a fellow sky enthusiast and a former member of the Board of Directors of CFAS (the Central Florida Astronomical Society), I’d like to introduce the website http://www.SkyMarvels.com and request that you include a link to it on your site. If so, it will be my pleasure to include a link to your site on the SkyMarvels “Links” page.

    Many thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Clear skies!

    Gary Winter
