Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Gene Kispert For years I owned a small telescope and was an occasional star gazer. After John Glenn's epic space flight and NASA's space explorations my interest increased and I became interested in visual astronomy, astrophotography and radio astronomy. After my retirement as a Quality Assurance Manager I became actively involved in amateur astronomy, helping to form an astronomy club and developing a slide program about the Solar System for presentations at schools, clubs and at the State Park. The slide and visual programs have been successful and I hope to improve my knowledge and materials as a Solar System Ambassador.
