Chris also practices Outreach in classrooms, at private and public star gazing events, and posts information and updates on his Facebook Page. He calls his Outreach and Sidewalk Astronomy efforts Astronomy by the Bay.
He clocked an amazing 2,439 people to his scope(s) in 2016, and is often joined by other astronomers. He posts on his FB page ahead of time if he is heading there. Even if you can’t make it down, check out his page–you’ll sometimes feel as if you were there. Chris is very approachable and he’ll usually let you take a pic on your phone through the scope. It’s interesting and fun.
