Bad Astronomy welcomes Exploradome

And now -- literally -- a word from our sponsor.

I'd like to take a moment and welcome Explora Dome by Polydome as an advertiser with Bad Astronomy. You may see the banner ad for Explora Dome by Polydome when you read my site.

Explora Dome by Polydome is a company that makes smaller domes for at-home astronomers. For around the cost of a decent 'scope, Explora Dome by Polydome makes complete domes for your yard so that you don't have to worry about howling winds, freezing to death in the winter, and that annoying light on your neighbor's house. I know a lot of my readers have telescopes in their yard, so if you do, consider taking a look at the Explora Dome by Polydome site.

And if you have a company or some other venture that you'd like to advertise here or on another OuterSpaceAds network site, then please let us know.
