Lost in Space NYC is Justin Samaha, amateur astronomer and life-long space enthusiast.
Justin brings the stars to the people, wherever they are. You’ll find him with his telescope on street corners, in city parks, and beyond.
Most people are surprised and delighted to discover what they can see under an urban night sky: Saturn and its beautiful rings; the rugged craters, valleys, and mountains of the Moon; red Mars and its polar ice cap; and more.
Astronomy for everyone is the belief that inspired Justin to start setting up his telescope in the least likely of places.
Anywhere with a patch of clear sky and lots of passersby is perfect for astronomy.
By day, Justin is a guitar teacher, composer for film and TV, occasional stagehand, and writes a monthly astronomy column for a small newspaper. He also writes fiction, and is working on two science fiction novels and several short stories.
He lives in Manhattan with his wife, three children, and two dogs.
