Definition: Chachka - (Yiddish) an inexpensive showy trinket

The Chachka NetTM is my small, ever evolving, website dedicated to general astronomy, the Sweet Hill Observatory of Plaistow NH and its instruments, astronomy on St. John USVI...my FAVORITE place in the world, St. John oddities, and other miscellaneous treasures that strike my fancy. Come back often to get your passport re-stamped.
