Jack Horkheimer, The Star Hustler 1938 - 2010

Sky and Telescope Story

On the weekends I was allowed stay up as late as I wanted.

My friends and I would watch professional wrestling, which ran late into the night. As soon as the wrestling was over we would turn the knob to the local PBS channel. Some funny sounding music would start to play and a guys voice said:

Some people hustle pool,
Some people hustle cars,
But have you ever heard about
The man who hustles stars?

 It was the "The Star Hustler ".  I remember the enthusiasm he had during the show. He showed so much excitement. He was able to bring you into his world , even though for just a short time, and make star gazing interesting and fun.

My parents would watch it with us sometimes and afterwards would take us outside look for stuff that was on the show.

He shared his knowledge and passion with millions . I am grateful for such a gift.

As the "The Star Hustler " always says :

Keep Looking Up
