Chuck

WELCOME!

   It's not really my Moon, of course, but during decades of studying it, both with a backyard telescope and as a NASA scientist, I have had diverse opportunities to learn many interesting facts and stories that I'd like to share with you. I do that already in my 2003 book The Modern Moon:A Personal View, in my monthly Sky & Telescope columns, and via my daily Lunar Photo of the Day website. But there is much additional information that is important and useful, but doesn't fit those formats. That is the reason for this new website.

  So try exploring the options in the menu bar above and let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions or contributions.

   And if you want to find out just who is Chuck Wood, to see if you should believe anything here, check the Chuck option in the menu bar. I have had a lucky life with regard to the Moon and other things, and a fun time making this site. I hope you enjoy it too!
