About your host

I am an avid amateur astronomer who loves looking up into the sky. I was previously an astronomy lab tech at Los Angeles City College where I helped students with their astronomy labs. I am also currently a telescope deck volunteer at Chabot Space and Science Center. I really love seeing people's reaction when they look through a telescope for the first time.

What we’ll do

First, I will go over the basics of navigating the night sky. I will be observing objects in our solar system, such as the moon, planets and also our sun. If conditions permit, we will also observe deep space objects such as the Orion nebula and the andromeda galaxy. We will also be making sketches of the moon that you can keep.

What else you should know

You should dress in very warm clothing. Thing puffy jacket, beanie, thick socks and gloves. Better to over do it that under do it!

What I’ll provide

Equipment
Telescope and Materials I will provide sky maps for everyone, red flashlights, my telescope and also coffee.

Where you'll be

We will be in Golden Gate Park by West Hellman Hollow. It is a south facing location which is important for observing all of the objects in our solar system. This particular part of the park has low light pollution and restrooms which are also must haves.
