Question: Hello, I’m looking for some help and guidance so I can pursue a career in astronomy. I have many questions if someone wouldn’t mind talking to me? — John
Answer: Let me point you to a wiki page that I maintain which contains links to resources for students in astronomy. See my Student Resources page for further information. The most useful content on this wiki page is the pointer to an article which appeared in Mercury magazine in 2008 by Duncan Forbes called “So You Want to Be a Professional Astronomer!”. This article is a must-read for budding astronomers.
