Barbara Wilson, veteran observer dies

Barbara Marie Rezac Wilson (71) died peacefully in Houston on September 24, 2019.

Barbara was a world-renowned Deep Sky Observer, served as a volunteer at TSP (including Board of Directors and emcee), a leader at George Observatory, Houston Astronomical Society, and Fort Bend Astronomy Club.

She co-authored the famous “Aint-No” Observing List with Larry Mitchell.

She was awarded the TSP Lone Star Gazer award in 1994, and her activities as a prominent observer have influenced the amateur astronomy community for many years.

Barbara will be especially missed in the observing fields at TSP and by her husband Buster.
