About Mike Hankey

Mike Hankey is a software developer, entrepreneur, amateur astronomer, astrophotographer, meteor observer and meteorite hunter. With only a few years of astronomy experience under his belt Mike has been busy photographing deep space objects, comets and meteor showers. Mike's enthusiasm for meteors led him to the American Meteor Society where he volunteered his time and the services of his software development company to redesign the AMS website and fireball reporting tool. Mike as the webmaster, continues to maintain and enhance the AMS website and fireball reporting tools.
