As a backyard astronomer, I recently became fascinated with many of the neat objects I could find with my telescope at night. After locating and identifying many of the most prominent planets, star clusters, nebulae, and celestial events of the night sky, I turned to music to illustrate my excitement. The result was Celestial Objects, a short work for chamber orchestra. This work consists of six miniatures, each based on some of my favorite objects that I found in the night sky through my telescope.
