Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Bo Lowrey Bo Lowrey has over 30 years of activity in the amateur astronomy community, ranging from early interest in the Amateur Satellite Program (AMSAT) in the 1970's when he was the area coordinator for Kentucky, to his most recent community involvement as the Sidewalk Astronomy Chair for the Louisville Astronomical Society. His present occupation is as the Director of Telecommunications for Jefferson County Public Schools, one of the larger K-12 school districts in the US.
