My name is Ed Pieret and I am an amateur astronomer.  I am a past president and currently vice-president of the San Mateo County Astronomical Society (SMCAS).

If you are in San Mateo County in California and would like to sponsor a stargazing or educational event, please contact me at

I am an active participant in
