Dick Phillips’ Archive

Dick Phillips was an educator in physics and astronomy, a musician and a man of passionate feelings who cared deeply about his fellow human beings. His wonder of the Universe led him to contemplate the heavens with the naked eye and through astronomical telescopes.

From 1977 to 2002 Dick recorded his astronomical observations in three log books, leaving a legacy of drawings and the written word, including some very personal views. Those of us who had the pleasure of observing with Dick wanted to share these hundreds of pages with a wider audience so we will be loading them onto this archive over the coming weeks. We hope that you will enjoy them.
