J. Keith Sowell, a Planetary Astronomer and Volunteer

I am a Planetary Astronomer and Planetary Society Volunteer and will be the Florida East Coast Outreach Coordinator. I am a NASA OSIRIS-REX Mission Ambassador and give astronomy demonstrations and training in Titusville Florida which is next to Kennedy Space Center. The Planetary Society helped me get my position because I signed up for the certificate to get my name sent to the asteroid Bennu. After I signed up, I put in my application to be an Ambassador and a year later I was named one. I also got a VIP pass to the OSIRIS-REx launch on September 8, 2016. Being a Planetary Astronomer I am proud to be a member of the Planetary Society because it has paid rewards for my membership and helped me to promote planetary science.
