"Keep Looking Up!"

On August 20th one of the most recognized PBS voices was silenced. “Jack Horkheimer, Star Gazer” was and is a 5 minute show on the weekly astronomy events that can be seen during the week, with his quirky humor and stories thrown in to help explain the historical and scientific side.

He was on TV since 1976 every week, a showman and executive director of the planetarium at the Miami Museum of Science and Space Transit. I don’t think he had any formal training in Astronomy, but was an enthusiastic teacher of the sky. We’ll miss you Jack, “Keep looking up!”

I used to see the show and would tease Erika, she was little, There’s your boyfriend!”




Here’s a link to his last show.
