After nearly 40 years, photographer and astronomy blogger Bob King is retiring from the Duluth News Tribune.
King, better known as "Astro Bob," shares regular news and insights about outer space that are tailored to his audience in northeastern Minnesota. He'd alert readers to upcoming meteor showers and times to see the northern lights as well as explain new scientific findings.
When he's not pointing his camera at the night sky, King covers the news in and around Duluth.
MPR News' Cathy Wurzer spoke with King about his career. You can see some of his favorite photos from the past few years below.
