Lead Sky Writer
Talk to Bruce at EarthSky Tonight.
Bruce McClure has been a writer and editor for the wildly popular EarthSky Tonight feature since early 2004. If you ask a sky question on our site, it’s likely to be Bruce that answers it. He says his “number one passion”- besides his wife Alice – is stargazing. Bruce writes sky articles, gives planetarium shows and hosts a wide assortment of public astronomy programs in and around his home in upstate New York. His love for the heavens has taken him to Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, and he has sailed the North Atlantic, earning his celestial navigation certificate through the School of Ocean Sailing and Navigation. Bruce is also a sundial aficionado. He believes the scroll of the lore-laden heavens, written in a language universal and more enduring than any human artifice, is our shared heritage. And he shares EarthSky’s vision for stewardship, hoping future generations will enjoy uncontaminated air, soil and water, and a clear window to the universe.
