Andres Chapman

A lover of aeronautics since childhood, the sky has always been my great passion. With the passing of time I was lucky enough to be able to train as a commercial pilot.

My passion for the skyies was what surely led me here. My interest in astronomy started only about fifteen years ago.

I was quickly interested in learning how to give scientific value to my images. So I quickly moved away from astrophotography , and began to study the techniques used for photometry and astrometry. This activity that has allowed me to make good friends in my country and around the world.

Since five years ago, I have started observing star occultation by asteroids, and producing my own ephmeris, which I share with my colleagues in SouthAmerica using Occult4 sofware. So much adrenaline involved in star occultations!
