Rigil Kent Impressions

This site is under construction & should be finished by the end of the year. Until then, a selection of Lynn’s astrophotography can be found on her Flickr pages.

Lynn is a member of the KNVWS (Royal Dutch Association for Meteorology & Astronomy) and its Workgroup Astrophotography, as well as chairman of the Gooi en Vechtstreek Chapter of the KNVWS and the Gooi en Vechtstreek Public Observatory. She has been an active amateur for more than 20 years. After a long business career, she switched “careers”, completing a MSc (Astronomy). Her main (astronomical) interests are exoplanet systems, globular clusters and astrophotography. She also gives presentations for schools & clubs and is the  NASA-JPL Solar System Ambassador for the Benelux.

In 2010, she received the Dutch Der Kinderen Prize for Astrophotography. A number of her photos have been featured as an Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day and several have been published in national and international magazines.
