What's in a Name

You might wonder how the McLean Astronomical Research and Studies (M.A.R.s.) name came to be. The answer is simple. This is dedicated to my father, Mar McLean. That's correct my fathers first name is Mar not short for Marvin or anything just that, strange as it is. He encouraged my astronomy interests. While trying many different name possibilities, the link between the planet Mars and Pop's name just seemed natural, one thing led to another and here we are!
