Greg Scheiderer writes Seattle Astronomy. His life spans the space age; he was about nine weeks old when Sputnik was launched in October 1957. Greg grew up following Apollo and the race to the Moon, and has been a space and astronomy buff ever since. He has spent more than three decades in the communication business as a journalist, public relations practitioner, government relations specialist, and freelance writer. He is a member of the Seattle Astronomical Society, and served for several years as editor of its newsletter, The Webfooted Astronomer. Greg is a member of the Northwest Science Writers Association, and has written about astronomy for Alaska Airlines Magazine; Reflector, the magazine of the Astronomical League; Arches magazine at the University of Puget Sound; the “Local Group” blog on Astronomy.com; and Examiner.com.
Though Greg is a member of the Seattle Astronomical Society and we often cover SAS events, Seattle Astronomy is not associated with the society.
