Orion Bear Astronomy is dedicated to bringing awareness to what is going on in the sky, and essentially share my passion of astronomy to the public through available media.
I have been a passionate amateur astronomer for most of my life. I’ve always been considered a science nerd. While I had a base knowledge of the heavens when I was young, it wasn’t until 2007, when I was 19, when a combination of college classes and self taught experiences opened me to the astronomy community!
In 2018, I also began working part time as a telescope demonstrator at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA, which also began opening new avenues for yours truly, as well as provide another platform to share my passion with the public!
The main question is why do I have this website, as well as the Facebook page?
I have made this website the place where I will post my personal experiences past and present, as well as give helpful information about celestial events, and how to get into the world of astronomy! Anything I do with social media serves as outreach platforms, as well as directing any interested reader to this website.
March 2018 Update: Regarding the YouTube Channel, I have not been active with it for some time due my busy schedule, but will eventually make plans for a “relaunch” of the YouTube Channel with more videos and commentaries.
You can find more common questions about myself answered on the FAQ page by simply clicking the down arrow next to the “About” tab.
I also have tabs that help direct you towards photos and videos that were taken by yours truly.
Thank you for visiting Orion Bear Astronomy.
