“Star Gazers,” which started at our museum’s former site in Coconut Grove as a WPBT2 original production, is the world’s first and only weekly television series on naked eye astronomy. Frost Science has been the home of the show since 1976, when Jack Horkeimer, then executive director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium, began the show as its iconic host. Today “Star Gazers” is hosted by James C. Albury, planetarium director at the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium at Santa Fe College, and Dean Regas, outreach astronomer and assistant director at the Cincinnati Observatory, and airs on over 100 PBS stations around the world. Each weekly episode features selected objects for naked eye viewing during the following week, including significant astronomical events, key constellations, stars, planets lunar eclipses and more.
