Today I spent a few minutes talking with Irish Greg of the KFOG Morning Show for their podcast series. Greg is one of those people with boundless enthusiasm and an insatiable appetite for discussion about any topic, so when we talk astronomy it's always a good time. Today's conversation ranged from the Summer Solstice to the upcoming lineup of Mars and Venus and some bright stars, to the June 26th Lunar Eclipse and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).

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.
