Farewell, Jack.

The world of amateur astronomy took a pretty hard hit on Friday at the passing of Jack Horkheimer. Jack was perhaps most popular for his PBS series, the Star Gazer, formerly Star Hustler. He helped popularize, or better yet, returned amateur astronomy to "naked-eye" astronomy.

Personally, I'll miss Jack. I found him shortly after David introduced me to astronomy, and I made it a point to watch him as often as I could.

Thanks, Jack, for all you've done, and bringing astronomy to the masses.
