John Sheff

John Sheff has explored some remote parts of our planet on adventure travel journeys and mountaineering expeditions. His lifelong background as an amateur astronomer and space buff has him just as excited about the exploration of other planets. He enjoys participating in star parties, particularly inner-city ones, organized by his local club - the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston (ATMoB). He loves to share views of the sky through the observatory telescope he operates during Public Nights at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, and serves as a NASA Solar System Ambassador. Lately, he's been teaching astronomy after-hours to 2nd-6th grade students in Cambridge schools. When on Earth, he lives in Cambridge, MA.
