An astrophotographer, Bakley hosts educational events on the beaches of Cape May during which he explains the sky above beyond what people can see with their naked eye. The stargazing events he hosts in Cape May have been attended by sometimes hundreds of people, so it was only a matter of time before somebody took some serious notice of his work.

NJ.com reports that upon gaining the attention of NASA, Bakley's focus on what lies beyond the sky has secured him a spot as a Solar System Ambassador. The training he will receive as an ambassador will allow him to speak at various community events and to organizations about NASA's mission.
