Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Daniel Cervantes I became interested in astronomy while in the second grade. Within a few years, I read everything about astronomy that was available at the nearest three public libraries. In the third grade, I received a 2.5 inch refractor telescope which I used to follow (at least I tried too!) Apollo 8 and Apollo 11 to the moon. As a teenager, I remember calling the big city newspaper to see if I could get a copy of the Viking image that was published on the front page. Upon being told by the editor that the photo had been thrown away, I convinced him to search his waste basket to retrieve it. That evening, my family drove me eight miles to pick it up. I now enjoy sharing the planets, the Moon, and the Sun with others.
