John A. Read

JOHN A. READ’s journey into astronomy began with a small and rickety telescope purchased at the local pharmacy. He found it fascinating to observe the moon and Saturn with its rings with such meagre equipment. He decided to share these views with others. After writing his book, 50 Things to See with a Telescope, John retired from a career in corporate finance. He is also the author of 50 Things to See on the Moon. He is now a telescope operator at the Burke-Gaffney Observatory, a board member of the Halifax Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and is studying astrophysics at Saint Mary’s University. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with his wife and writing partner Jennifer L. Read.
