I want to let Bay Area readers know about a very exciting event coming up on Tuesday March 2nd in San Francisco. The event, Ignite Bay Area, is one of a collection of global "Ignite" events happening next week. If you have never experienced an Ignite presentation, they are very fast and focused 5-minute talks about everything from geek technology to social trends to .... astronomy! I'll be presenting a talk on amateur astronomy that I trust will inspire and motivate many to look up in the night sky and make a cosmic connection. Hope to see you there!
In 2005 I began writing a column for the San Francisco Waldorf School newsletter called "The Urban Astronomer." I started this blog in 2007 as a place to archive my articles and to offer additional insights on the night sky - even if you live in a big city. In 2008 I became an occasional guest on the KFOG Morning Show, and more recently on KALW and KGO. Archived shows are posted on the blog. I conduct private star parties for special events and corporate events. Contact me for details.
