Heather Nova Photo Gallery

Heather Nova The Heather Nova Online Magazine is a nonprofit unofficial website. Our office is based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  

We call our site the Heather Nova Online Magazine US edition because we want to let the Heather Nova fans in the USA know that we're right with you!

We hope to achieve our mission by offering you the best you can get on the net and by providing you with lots of information about our idol & our figure head:  Heather Nova, the shining star from Bermuda.

The old Heather Nova Flash site is back online!

written by Cynthia Fridsma 

There's some great news for those of you who liked the old nova flash site, because we decided to bring the site back to life. There's a reason for this: we started the Heather Nova Online Magazine in '01. In '03, I registered heathernova.us and this site was a fact! So this is our tenth anniversary and what is the best way to celebrate? To bring back some of that old magic we all know as multimedia! So we proudly present the old heathernova website that I created in '08. 

The flash site was online from '08 until '10, and now it's back with the original messages that Heather wrote...

Webmaster tips and tricks

Perhaps sometimes you wonder where do the visitors come from and which webpages are of the most interest to your audience? I wrote a short article titled: 

How to monitor your site performance?

Written by Cynthia Fridsma  

Google Analytics is a great tool, but Google Analytics doesn't show you all the details you might need to keep your website interesting to your audience, and that's when you can use PHP to measure your site.   

If you really want to know what's happening on your site, then you can use PHP and MySQL to track your site.  

First, you need to create a MySQL database to store the referring URLs.  

Go to the section "Creativity, Webdesign tips, PHP tips and tricks" to read the complete article.

Voyager 1 Reaches Final Boundary Before Interstellar Space

The Voyager 1, operated by the U.S. space agency NASA, has entered a newly discovered region at the edge of the solar system, and is close to crossing a final boundary into instellar space. 

Scientists are calling this region between between the solar system and deep space the "magnetic highway." 

Astronomers say Voyager is still under the influence of our Sun, but that it has reached an area in which highly charged energy particles from interstellar space are beginning to stream in. 
Project scientist Edward Stone of the California Institute of Technology says astronomers did not previously know about this final boundary discovered by Voyager.
