Growing up on an acreage away from city lights, sparked Zach Thompson's curiosity and wonder about the stars. He believes Astronomy is something we understand on a very fundamental level that links us to people before and after us. This love of the night sky drew him to his area planetarium, where he became friends with the coordinator, who taught how to share this passion with others using an incredible teaching tool. Zach was very fortunate to become his apprentice and step into this role at the planetarium years later. He endeavors to show others what thrilled him about the stars with the hope of giving them a new perspective on our place in space.
