Fred Shumacher


Astronomy, Exoplanets, & Exobiology

There are many methods to Lunar Observing. The Astronomical League’s Lunar I and II observing programs are designed to introduce amateur astronomers to the object in the sky that most of us take for granted. Fred Schumacher will show us how to take advantage of these programs to expand our observing repertoire.

Fred Schumacher has been an amateur astronomer since he looked through his first telescope at 7 years old. Over the course of his astronomical career, he has worked on amateur and professional projects at Chabot Observatory, Lick Observatory, “M904K” Observatory, and Modesto Junior College. He has also been a guest observer on the 60 inch telescope at Mt. Wilson in southern California.
His astronomical interests range from general observing with friends at Star Parties to imaging and precision measurements of astronomical events for the National Science Foundation (Project:ASTRO) and US Naval Observatory. He holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and degrees in Business Science and Mathematics. He, along with his wife Julie, are currently working on various Astronomical League programs.
