This individual has been with the club for a few years and has distinguished himself as an avid observer. Many cold nights when I would stay home, he was out at Blackfoot wondering where the rest of us were. He advises the rest of the observers on interesting news items via Astro and freely offers advice to those looking for information on astronomy, buying telescopes or observing. He is also heavily into observing double stars. The Observer of the Year for 2010 is Patrick Heinz.
