Grand Canyon Conservancy’s Astronomer in Residence

by The 100 Companies

A lifelong fascination with the night skies literally led physicist Dan Fleisch, Ph.D. to the edge of the Grand Canyon where, until Dec. 21 – the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere – he will continue living and working at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

Fleisch, who specializes in electromagnetics and space physics, is this year’s final Astronomer in Residence – a program of the nonprofit Grand Canyon Conservancy.

He looks forward to the pristine dark skies above the park, a passion he’s pursued since receiving The Golden Book of Astronomy and a small refracting telescope six decades ago.
