Clearlake Star Gazing, Developed and Hosted by WCWS
About Michael

Cyclops on the front page of the Napa Register!

Clearlake Star Gazing is amateur astronomer and telescope builder Michael McKeown.  A docent for astronomy at Mt. Diablo state park, Michael is often seen at evening events around the northbay sharing his telescope with the public. Michael supports local schools and Taylor Observatory with his astronomy program.

Michael's background is in engineering, and he designed and built the large telescope he calls Cyclops. Michael says: "I want to give the public the best view I can afford".

As an entertainer with a focus on the natural world, Michael can speak on many different subjects including philosophy (the study of how we observe), ancient mysteries, E.T., cutting edge physics developments, and of course can speak widely on astronomy and telescope building.
