Meet the Stargazer

My name is Derek Reid, Executive Director of Sky Candy Astronomy.

Like you, I am a citizen of the cosmos, quietly ruled by gravity, surrounded by dark matter, and immersed in an endless waterfall of stardust.

Perhaps unlike you, I spend my trips around the Sun working as a documentary filmmaker, science educator and e-commerce entrepreneur.

I'm beyond excited that you found Sky Candy Astronomy on the web. I hope you find something here or at our e-learning center that fills you with wonder.

Our passion for out-of-this-world apparel, gifts and e-learning has become our purpose


  • We are responsible

    We hold ourselves accountable to leave the world in a better place than we found it, and measure our success by the things we do that benefit individuals, communities and the entire cosmos.

  • We are committed

    For every dollar in profit earned, we put one dollar into our astronomy school scholarship fund, which empowers underprivileged people to learn all about the real universe.
