`Star Gazer' host Jack Horkheimer dies - Miami-Dade Breaking News - MiamiHerald.com

From the article:

"Jack Horkheimer, Public Television's ``Star Gazer,'' died Friday afternoon of a respiratory ailment, according to a spokesman for the Miami Museum of Science and Space Transit Planetarium." ...

... "Horkheimer was best known as the creator, writer and host of public television's ``Star Gazer,'' the 30-year weekly TV series on naked eye astronomy. Seen on PBS stations nationwide, ``Star Gazer'' reached millions of people, helping create a love of the stars for several generations of enthusiasts.'' ...
--------------------
On a personal note, I watched Jack hundreds of times over his 30 years as 'The Stargazer' and I will miss him a lot. Hopefully, he now has perfect vision of the entire universe and it's his playground.
