Interview: Interview with Jeanette Dunphy (jjjnettie)

Jeanette Dunphy is part of the furniture around here! Having been a member of IceInSpace for over 7 years, she's known by all and is always happy and always smiling. But let's dig a little deeper into the mind of jjjnettie!

Mike talks to Jeanette about her passion for astronomy and astrophotography, what it's like being a girl in a very male-dominated hobby, and how forums and social networks have changed the enjoyment of astronomy for the better!

Read the interview here:

Interview with Jeanette Dunphy.

Thanks for doing the interview, Jeanette!

I enjoyed reading the interview.
The comments on the "boys club", and how it is/was overcome, were enlightening.

jjjnettie's enthusiasm for Astronomy is clear and upon reading the interview I became even more inspired to get outside tonight (weather permitting).

Well done JJ and Mike!!
Good to hear your thoughts on the "boys club" and nice to hear about your trip to Hawaii. Where abouts are you getting to while there?
