About Me

Astronomy Scope Editor

Hey, I’m Chris! I’m the astronomer behind Astronomy Scope.

I’m an astronomy enthusiast from New Mexico who has loved the universe since a young age, ever since I peered at the moon through my grandfather’s telescope.

Over the past 12 years, I’ve studied the sky, tracked planet movements, and attended stargazing events.

I’ve even written articles for astronomy magazines and captured photos of the Milky Way during my travels.

I created Astronomy Scope to share the beauty of the night sky with others, as I believe it’s something that should be appreciated by all.
