Who we are

#Popscope is an urban movement that aims to reconnect communities to the night sky—and to each other—by hosting free, “pop-up” astronomy nights in public spaces. To date, we have generated chapters in Ottawa, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Jacksonville, and NYC that have hosted weekly and monthly events to inspire and bring people together.


Ariel is a researcher at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity, a Baltimore Global Shaper, Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassador (ACEAP), and garden manager for Pigtown Food For Thought community garden.
