    Sadly, Roy Tucker, co-discoverer of the Apophis asteroid, died today (3/5/2021). He was my first cousin and was an inspiration to me throughout my entire life. He will me missed by his personal and astronomical families but his many accomplishments and memory will live on….. It is prophetic that his passing is on the same day Apophis is making its closest approach to the earth this year.
