Move over NASA, Humboldt has got its very own astrophotographer.

Mike Myer has called Allen County home for almost five decades, and currently works in the shipping department at Monarch Cement, but his newest passion is recording images of deep space and the night sky.

His love for cosmic things began early, becoming enthralled while watching the space race, in particular, when U.S. astronauts embarked on the Apollo missions.
