Please join the Kopernik Astronomical Society in honoring the legendary “Barlow Bob” (Robert Godfrey), who passed away earlier this year. He was a member of Rockland County, Mohawk Valley, and the Kopernik Astronomical Societies and he was a great friend to many.
To commemorate all Barlow Bob did for the astronomical community and the general public, we will be dedicating a permanent plaque to him located near the Kopernik Observatory Heliostat.
He shared his love of solar astronomy with great enthusiasm to all of central New York and beyond. Barlow Bob was founder & organizer of the NEAF Solar Star Party. He also supported numerous public outreach activities and astronomy events, and was host of the KAS AstroFest Solar Star Party (KASSP) for the last 4 years.
