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 PROMISE YOU THESE THINGS:
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.
