If you’ve been to the Blue Mountain Observatory recently, you might’ve met Nate McCrady, a University of Montana assistant astronomy professor.

According to a UM news release, McCrady has won the first University of Montana College of Arts and Sciences Award for Teaching Across the Cucciculum. That’s a long, long title, but it means he is excellent at teaching with enthusiasm and energy.

Nate joined the Missoula faculty in 2009 and teaches both entry level and upper division astronomy and physics classes. Some of that teaching occurs during star-gazing nights at UM’s Blue Mountain Observatory.

By the way, McCrady is leading efforts to purchase a new telescope, which would be part of the MINERVA array of Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory at Mountain Hopkins, AZ.
