Poetry of the Night:

A Nightwatchman’s Journey

by

Dr. David H. Levy

Wendee’s Husband,

Comet and Asteroid Hunter, Co-Discoverer, Shoemaker-Levy 9

Editor of the web magazine Sky’s Up!

Columnist, Skyward, in the local Vail Voice paper,

Emmy Award Winner, “Three Minutes to Impact” Documentary,

Five honorary doctorates in Science and a PhD which combines astronomy and English Literature

 

“This presentation will be a look at the two main (and sometimes conflicting) aspects of my astronomical career, the search for comets, and the relation of English poetry to the night sky. One involves looking at the sky; the other involves feeling the sky.”

Meet David

David is a PhD which combines astronomy and English Literature. He is the co-Discoverer of the legendary Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, which impacted Jupiter in 1993, a vivid example of the importance of Planetary Defense in our lifetime.

A short bio for a tall man.

David H. Levy is arguably one of the most enthusiastic and famous amateur astronomers of our time. Although he has never taken a class in astronomy, he has written over three dozen books, has written for three astronomy magazines and has appeared on television programs featured on the Discovery and the Science Channels. Among David’s accomplishments are 23 comet discoveries, the most famous being Shoemaker-Levy 9 that collided with Jupiter in 1994, a few hundred shared asteroid discoveries, an Emmy for the documentary Three Minutes to Impact, five honorary doctorates in Science and a PhD which combines astronomy and English Literature. Currently, he is the editor of the web magazine Sky’s Up!, has a monthly column, Skyward, in our local Vail Voice paper. David continues to hunt for comets and asteroids, and lectures worldwide.
