Oregon Band Performs Original Sagan Song.

Looking around for new Sagan content I came across another song called 'Carl Sagan'. This tune is written and performed by the Portland (OR) ensemble, Loch Lomond.

It can be a little difficult to understand the vocals at first, but eventually they do clear up.

And if any member of Loch Lomond comes across this post, please know that I'd love to include a recording of this song in the 'Sounds of Sagan' audio player.


Sagan Brigade at Ithaca Festival

Pat recently wrote to us to ask for help in putting together a Sagan Brigade for the Ithaca Festival Parade which takes place in early June. The parade form deadline is March 17th, so if your interested in participating please email Pat ASAP at, or help spread the word. Here's a bit of what Pat has in mind:
It would be an opportunity for an uninhibited Sagan fellowship, a celebration of the man in the small city he called home. It would be a good opportunity to remind people of Sagan's continuing impact as well as a lighthearted way to put a public face on secularism, humanism, evolution, freethought, critical thinking, ethical science, skepticism, and yes, non-theism.
Again, email Pat ASAP at if you're interested in celebrating Sagan at this summer's Ithaca Festival.


My son, Sagan. Part Two.

A friend sent me a link to your site. I saw the photo of SmW's son, Sagan, posted on Feb 14. Our son is named Sagan too!

When camping last year we met another family with a 5 year old named Sagan.

I wonder how many of us are out there? There must be thousands! I am attaching a picture of our Sagan. What a legacy! I hope Carl Sagan would have been proud.

Heather, and son Sagan, born 01/05/03.
