has been interested in the night sky since he was about 8 years old. He joined the JAS (SPA) in his teens, observing the Sun and timed Lunar occultations. Later, he was inspired the then BAA Lunar Section Director Goeff Amery who lived not far away. I joining the BAA in 1974 aged 23. Then in about 1980 I started visual monitoring of asteroidal occultations using the predictions by Gordon E. Taylor. The European Asteroidal Observation Network (EAON) based in Belgium provided more detailed predictions, and so my interest continued. In the last few years i have video recorded some nice lunar grazing occultations with good timing accuracy.
Professionally I worked in Pharma and later the Agrochemical industry as a physical and analytical chemist, now retired. I coordinate occultation observing for the Asteroid and Remote Planets Section, and the Lunar Section. I am also a member of the International Occultation Timing Association, European section. (IOTA/ES).
