Clyde Tombaugh
American astronomer

Born in Streator, Illinois in 1906, Clyde W. Tombaugh developed an intensely keen interest in astronomy. With only a high school education, he built his own telescope which attracted the Lowell Observatory to hire Clydeand soon after. At the young age of 23, Clyde discovered Pluto on February 18th, 1930. Clyde went on to teach at Arizona State College, UCLA and New Mexico State University before retiring in 1973. Clyde passed away on January 17, 1997 and some of his cremated remains were placed onboard NASA's New Horizons space craft making Clyde the first human to have his remains sent outside our solar system. Clyde is just another of the many people and businesses who got their start in this small Midwest city, and who is also featured on one of the Walldog Murals scattered throughout the city's streets.

Driving the Circuit...
Location: Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area
Date of Photo: June 6th, 2021

MazoniaMap.jpg The Backstory: My wife and I had passed the entrance to this State Park on our cruises several times over the past year or so and never bothered to explore the road that lies beyond the the other side of that entrance. Last Sunday we did and what a neat surprise it was! Mazonia State Fish and Wildlife Area features 1,017 acres and is located in Grundy County 3 miles southeast of Braidwood on Illinois Route 53 and Huston Road. The area consists of over 200 impoundments (enclosed body's of water) ranging from less than ¼ acre to nearly 150 acres and they are filled with largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, green sunfish, crappie, channel catfish and bullhead. There is also game hunting, as well as fossil hunting. The photo below shows us on the special one-way road circuit that winds through a portion of the complex. We got about 1/4 mile further and had to cross a portion of the road with that was flooded with 5-6" of water - that was really a surprise since there wasn't any turning around allowed! A beautiful area with ample opportunities for photo's for Tail Light Tuesday!
