Projects

Promoting astronomy on a grass-roots level. 

Here's what I'm actively working on and what's quiet for now.  Buttons will take you directly to the website I made for that project  (excluding Michiana Astro, whose website I did not make) or to a relevant page on Nightwise. 

AstroCamp is a week-long stargazing and telescope adventure for kids aged 9-13 at YMCA Camp Eberhart in Three Rivers, MI.

In the corner of the Great Square of Pegasus is the star Scheat, Indiana's Bicentennial Star at 200 light years away.

Comet Festival was a community celebration of Comet ISON and the uncertainty of science. 

Dark Skies is my advocacy for sufficient yet sensible lighting to lessen light pollution and improve health. 

Eclipse 2017 is my preparation for the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, including the Sun Funnel.

First Midnight encompasses the astronomy components of South Bend's 150th anniversary celebration in 2015.

In this community experiment, students quantified how much of the night sky has been lost, then made a 3D map with 35,000 LEGO bricks to convey the results.
