Welcome to Our Universe


This website is dedicated to the universe in which we live.  You will find information on astrophotography, pictures of deep space objects, our solar system, and nature here on Earth.  I have also written manuscript on cosmology that summarizes scientific evidence on the question of whether the universe was made "on purpose". I hope you enjoy the journey. 

A limited number of free glossy or matte (up to 8 X 10) astrophotography prints will be given each month.  Simply send an email to  howard-daniel@sbcglobal.net and indicate which shot you would like (along with picture size and paper preferences for printing).  When viewing the pictures some may initially appear to be "huge" (in width and height) when downloading but they are not when the process is complete.  Have faith and have fun.
