Meet our speaker, Joe Comiskey:

I have been interested in astronomy and observing the sky since being a kid.  I joined the Kalamazoo Astronomical Society in 2009 and have served on the board for many years.  Showing others the wonders of the night sky is real thrill, as is tinkering/improving telescope and binocular equipment.  The moon is one of my favorite objects to observe.  I've currently earned the Lunar Observing and Binocular Messier Observing Program Certificates from the Astronomical League.   While not observing the sky or working as an analytical chemist (at Upjohn/Pfizer since 1986),  I enjoy listening/playing music, reading, fixing things, and enjoying the outdoors.  In addition, I have a passion for overall health and wellness (physical, mental, and spiritual).  I am active in my Catholic faith, including mass attendance, scripture studies, and fellowship groups.  I’m an avid bicycle commuter and runner as well.
