Biographical Information:

Jay Friedland has been fascinated by astronomy and space exploration since he was a small child. He is an avid amateur astronomer and eclipse chaser. He has traveled the world to observe many solar total solar eclipses, and a variety or other astronomical phenomena, including the Leonids Meteor Storm. He has collaborated with professional astronomers on several projects including imaging for the 2004 Transit of Venus and the discovery of a double star during a lunar occultation. He enjoys teaching kids of all ages about many aspects of astronomy, especially the sun, planets, eclipses, and deep space. One of his greatest joys is showing someone a view of the stars and planets for the first time.
