Gareth Williams' Personal Web Pages
I studied astronomy at University College, London, and since 1990 have been
an astronomer in (what is now called) the Solar, Stellar and Planetary
Sciences Division of the
Center for Astrophysics.
I am Associate Director of the
International Astronomical Union's
Minor Planet Center,
and I also serve as Webmaster for the
Minor Planet Center
IAU Commission 6's
Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams.

also a minor planet named after Leighton

an alien are completely without foundation.

on-stage once as a murder victim.
