Ask the Celestial Wizard!


Have an astronomy question? Ask our celestial wizard, Wayne! Simply fill out the form with your astronomy related question, and he will answer even the toughest celestial brain busters!

Wayne “The Celestial Wizard” Harris-Wyrick

Now some may consider “The Celestial Wizard” a pretentious, if not puffed up, title. But when discussing Wayne Harris-Wyrick, all other monikers fall short. With a love of all things celestial that can be traced back to a 5 year-old’s letter to Santa, asking for a telescope, Wayne has had a life-long fascination for all things slightly out of reach.

It is common knowledge around SMO that The Celestial Wizard is a wealth of astro-ethno-archeo-and all-sorts-of-other-Os information, but it’s the things he doesn’t know that have him pushing the boundaries of conventional thought. Like a true scientist, he is tugged at by the most difficult of questions and the most allusive of answers. As a paranormal investigator for Insight Paranormal, Inc., Wayne combines his affinity for the unanswered with his flair for the fantastic.

But it’s not all ghosts and black holes for The Celestial Wizard, he is also an avid writer and the author of a newly published children’s book. So, if you doubt the conjuring abilities of SMO’s own Celestial Wizard, take a trip with him to the edge of the Andromeda Galaxy, and you will agree it’s nothing short of magic.
