|Lowell L. Koontz
Taught in Fairfax County Schools for 31 years. The first 16 years as an Earth Science teacher and 15 years as a planetarium director and provided many night observation sessions for elementary school groups. The interaction and questioning by students has added much to the knowledge of the public interest in observational astronomy and the structure of this text. The text is very helpful in learning the constellations and gives many tips that are helpful in observing the night sky.
