Greetings, My wife and I are currently in the process of writing our next book, the main character of which will be an astronomer. So far my research has given me plenty of resources on astronomy itself but very little on the actual astronomer. I would love to get some insight on what the day to day life of a professional astronomer looks like. What are the various jobs one can do in astronomy? what does the field look like from a career standpoint? At this point we have the main character working at the Hayden Planetarium, if anyone has experience working there, that would be gold. However this is not a major point of the book and can be altered if a more appropriate workplace can be found. I look forward to hearing from all of you.
