Street corner astronomer

IMGP1447

A few paces down the waterfront promenade from the StoryCorps booth, Herman Heyn has a powerful telescope set up. Passersby are invited to gaze up at the sky and Herman, a self described “Street Corner Astronomer”, explains what they are seeing. He sets up his telescope at Harbor Place year-round and tonight marks the end of his 19th year of doing this. Herman also travels to schools and clubs to share his passion for astronomy.
