Bio: Kathy Coombs is a physics, science and mathematics teacher with an interest in all things space-related. Kathy has always had an interest in astronomy but it was not until a few years ago when she realised that she knew how stars worked but not their names that she began to actively pursuing a deeper understanding and knowledge of astronomy.
