There is no truth to the rumor of a government conspiracy to hide UFOs from the general public.  The skies are not swarming with UFOs.  Do not go out of town to a dark location or turn off your outside lights at home.  There is nothing to see in the dark sky that you can't see on TV.

The moon landing hoax is also good for a laugh.

 I will be doing a few shows at Cuyamaca College, each called "A Star Filled Evening".

I earned my Bachelor's degree in physics at California State University Northridge in 1987.  While there I worked two years at the San Fernando Solar Observatory.

I observed Pluto at the Mount Laguna Observatory 1988-1990.  I completed my thesis and Master's degree in astronomy at San Diego State University in 1993.

I now teach astronomy at a few colleges in the San Diego area.  Right now I'm teaching at Cuyamaca, Mesa and Southwestern colleges.  If you're thinking of taking my class in the near future, you might want to take a look at my syllabi.  They are not my latest syllabi, but there has been very little change.

Astr 120 Study Guide

If you are in my astronomy class now, you may want to use my astronomy tutorial. The tutorial includes images.  You may also download the Study Guide (1.5 Mbytes) for astronomy 100 or 110.  If you are also in the lab class, you may download the Lab Manual (10 Mbytes).

I also have images you can download.  Check my other pages for images too.

I also have some kid's stuff you can download.

There are quite a few other astronomy sites that I recommend.
