I Meet A Dead Astronomer

When I was a kid my heroes were all long-dead astronomers, among them the great Jospeh von Fraunhofer. He was actually more of a physicist and expert in optics than an astronomer, but he qualifies well enough as the latter. Fraunhofer mastered the art of making fine telescope and “a Fraunhofer” was synonymous with “the best telescope in the world” in the early 1800s. I recently had a chance to meet Herr Fraunhofer hismself in the dream world! See the story here: GHOST OF THE DEAD ASTRONOMER
