My Astro Activities

Return to Home PageHomepage.html

I have been a member of the Riverside Astro-nomical Society since 2001, and was Chairman of its Board of Trustees from 2005 to 2011. With over 300 members, it has become one of the largest astro clubs in the West. Link to RAS.

GMARS is the RAS dark sky site near Landers, California. I was its Site Director from 2003 to 2011. Thousands of hours of volunteer effort have created a great venue for all forms of amateur astronomy. Link to GMARS.

In 2011, I was a founding member of the Center for Solar System Studies (aka CS3) and assisted the early development of its site in Landers, CA. It does impressive work in the realm of asteroid photometry. Link to CS3.

I was the Chairman of Nightfall from 2004 to 2012. It is a unique, three-night star party held each October at the Palm Canyon Resort in Borrego Springs, California that usually attracts upwards of 200 participants. Link to Nightfall.
