Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Lawrence Foster Larry Foster began his exploration of space with binoculars and a lawn chair living just outside New York City. There wasn't much to see except on those rare occasions when he would travel to the suburbs and the woods of New Jersey. He eventually upgraded from binoculars to a small department store scope, and never stopped learning.

Today, Larry is a volunteer astronomy educator at the Eisenhower Observatory in Hopkins, Minnesota, and the organizer of a Meetup group, the Twin Cities Sidewalk Astronomers. He has hosted his scope at the Minnesota State Fair and the Minneapolis Library.

While he has completed online coursework in astronomy, his passion for space is the result of a lifelong curiosity about the heavens. His particular interests include spaceflight, exoplanets, and solar system formation.
