I'm Marty McGuire, an amateur astronomer and lifelong aeronautical & space enthusiast in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I enjoy presenting to groups of all ages in the Lehigh Valley area. I can be found on social media as “Backyard Astronomy Guy” and I've participated in NASA Social Media events at NASA Headquarters, NASA Kennedy Space Center, NASA Goddard and NASA Wallops Flight Facility. I like to stay current with developments in human spaceflight, solar system exploration and deep space telescope missions.

The NASA Solar System Ambassadors program is a public engagement effort that works with motivated volunteers across the nation to communicate the science and excitement of NASA’s space exploration missions and discoveries with the people in their communities.
