Petr Horálek travels the globe to observe and photograph solar and lunar eclipses, and delivers lectures in schools across the Czech Republic to encourage young people to cast their eyes towards the heavens. A few years ago, he became a Photo Ambassador for the European Southern Observatory, and even has an asteroid named for him (“6822 Horálek”). I spoke to him about his life’s work, shortly after NASA named his breath-taking picture of the comet NEOWISE – now closer than ever to the Earth – as “Astronomy Picture of the Day”.
