and Alice Newton
World-renowned astro-photographer and Arizona Sky Village co-founders, Jack and Alice Newton, have been a driving
force in amatuer astronomy for more than forty years. Jack's historically-significant photo of Apollo 11's oxygen dump proved
to skeptics that we were in fact enroute to the moon. Jack has been instrumental in developing photographic technology that has changed
the face of astrophotography.
With photos taken from Arizona Sky Village Jack has been featured in noted publications such as
Life in Picture's 70th, National Geographic, Astronomy Magazine, AOL, and many, many more.
