I am 51 years old and working as a confectioner in a backery. My passion is observing and photographing meteors, comets and other astronomical objects. I am a prolific meteor observer and my first observations date back to 1978. Since that time I have observed 70,000 meteors. In 2008 I recieved the Dr.. J. van der Bilt award of the KNVWS for my work in meteor astronomy. Click here for photos. In the same year, my family name was immortalized. An asteroid with provisional designation 2002 QX65 got the final name 132820 Miskotte Click here for an interactive plot (NASA website).
I also like "heavy music" such as heavy metal, hardrock, trash metal etc. Hence the name AstroRocker!
