      Deeply pained to inform you that one of the world's well known amateur astronomer John Dobson is no more. He was 98 years old.

      John was hospitalized at the Beverly Health and Rehab, Burbank, CA on Friday due to severe infection. He did recover from the infection but was still pretty weak. The severe cold in US did not make anything better for him.

      This year's ISAN (International Sidewalk Astronomy Night) will be dedicated to his memory and observed on 8th March.

      One can learn more about him and his work at the following wiki link
