A Little About Me

My name is Stephen Voss and I have lived in Invercargill at the southern tip of New Zealand for a little over 20 years, an "immigrant" from the North Island. My interest in astronomy dates from childhood, but gradually waned after leaving school due to the distractions of university, work and family.

In the last 15 years I have returned to this fascinating science, and now it is astronomy that proves to be the distraction from all of that "other important stuff". Even still, my "real" job as a medical doctor practising in family medicine does not always allow me the time under the stars I would ideally like to enjoy.

Over the years I have developed an appreciation for the inverse law of astronomical knowledge - the more I learn, the more I realise how little I understand!
