Meet the Author

Steve began his love affair with the night sky as a nine-year-old stargazer in the back yard of his family home. During the following 35 years, he has pursued his astronomical interests on both amateur and professional levels. He has gained worldwide recognition as being among the handful who pioneered the use of video technology as an effective and popular medium for imaging the night sky, and was an invited contributor on the subject in the Oxford Astronomy Encyclopedia. The asteroid 14420 Massey (1991 SM) was named after him.
