Today's discussion with KFOG's Irish Greg features (a) the Milky Way in the Autumn Sky, (b) Fireball across Southern California, (c) new planets being discovered, and (d) the Supernova in the Pinwheel Galaxy. As always, it's good fun and in exactly 8 minutes, you'll be a more informed citizen scientist. Click here to listen.
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.
