Piloting my 1999 Portaball is like driving a sports car through the night sky.
As long as folks still explore the night skies with his marvelous telescopes, Peter lives on.
A true pioneer.

I had great fun with him a few times at Astrofest, he chuckled when I called him "The Man From Glad". I'm sure at all star parties, we've met some characters, Peter was a good one! R.I.P. Peter, hope you're having a ball wherever you are...
