William Spizzirri

Says Mr. Spizziri about Comet Hunters Gene & Carolyn Shoemaker and David Levy

"Several years ago I was fortunate to spend some time with those astronomers on Palomar mountain. They discussed their telescope, how they did their work there and their discoveries. I will share photos, and videos of my interviews with them and what I learned about the telescopes on Mt. Palomar. Prepare for a bit of time travel."

Bill Spizzirri has been an amateur astronomer for 50 years and has also been a member of an astronomy club near Chicago for 36 years and counting. He served there as President for two years and has held other offices. Bill is now a retired software analyst and grandpa of three. His main astronomy activity now is teaching children about our universe.
