|Comment||I would like to thank Mr. Seligman for the time and effort he devoted to a rather abstruse question I had for him. We were not able to find the answer, but it is quite possible that there actually is no answer. His suggestions showed that he completely understood my question, and they were very helpful. So, if you have a question, it would be well worth your while to ask him, because he will very generously devote his attention to it, and you will benefit from it.|
I can answer almost any question about astronomy and related sciences, such as physics and geology. I will not answer questions about astrology and similar pseudo-scientific rubbish.
I have been a professor of astronomy for over 40 years, and am working on an online text/encyclopedia of astronomy, and an online catalog of NGC/IC objects.
Astronomical Journal, Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (too long ago to be really relevant, but you could search for Courtney Seligman on Google Scholar)
I received a BA in astronomy and physics and a MA in astronomy, both from UCLA. I was working on my doctoral dissertation when I started teaching, and discovered that I preferred teaching to research.
