300 ASTEROIDS AND COUNTING

Gary Hug has discovered over 300 hundred asteroids and is one of the Planetary Society's Gene Shoemakers Fellows.

Gary Hug turned his fascination with asteroids into more than just a hobby. He built an observatory behind his house, and courtesy of his homemade reflector telescope, the "amateur" asteroid tracker has identified 300 flaming balls of ice and rock.
