Instructor Howard Kntych with his telescope "Brunhilda", Astronomy: Eyes on the Sky Part I and Part II at Scappoose High School

Columbia County Instructor Spotlight: Howard Kntych's interest in the sky began as a boy in Chicago, when he was intrigued by the full moon. He has taught astronomy in New Mexico, Namibia, Africa and the Portland area. He says: "I get to talk about things like black holes and the expansion of the universe, and get paid for it. It doesn't get any better than that!"
