Alan Dyer

Alan Dyer is a writer and producer of planetarium programs for the TELUS Spark Science Centre in Calgary. He is one of Canada's best-known astronomy writers and serves as associate editor of SkyNews magazine, Canada's magazine of stargazing. He also serves as a contributing editor to Sky and Telescope magazine, writing frequent reviews of equipment. Alan has co-authored several best selling guidebooks for amateur astronomers, including “The Backyard Astronomer's Guide,” “Advanced Skywatching” and “Astronomy: The Definitive Guide.” As an amateur astronomer, his interests include astrophotography and deep-sky observing. Alan also takes the opportunity as often as possible to visit the southern hemisphere to pursue both interests under southern skies. His other obsession, eclipse chasing, has taken him to every continent, chalking up 15 total solar eclipses. Asteroid 78434 is named for him.
