In a world that is ever more infused with the blessings and challenges of technology, it is essential that everyone has at least some understanding of the basic principles of science. Citizen science projects involve amateurs to gather research data. This offers a unique opportunity for people to enrich their lives by participating in hands-on science.

The Citizen Sky project engages thousands of amateur astronomers world-wide to contribute their observations of a variable star in order to unveil its mysterious nature. There is nothing like such a hands-on experience to equip free-thinking people with the ability to make decisions that require a scientific understanding.

I produced the documentary "Mystery in the Sky" about the Citizen Sky project so that many people may share in this experience. In this documentary the citizen scientists, project organizers and professional astronomers explain the importance of Citizen science and how amateur observations contribute to cutting edge scientific research.

I am pleased to report that this film has been received with enthusiasm by both amateurs and professional scientists alike.
