Named in honor of Jonathan Eberhart, space science writer for the weekly publication Science News. For more than two decades Eberhart has reported advances and discoveries in planetary science through his coverage of planetary spacecraft encounters, the annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, and the annual meetings of the Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) of the American Astronomical Society. He is known and respected for his attention to detail and accuracy in science reporting. Eberhart is also a talented composer and performer of folk music. As such, he is a founder of and performer in the "Titan Equatorial Band", an impromptu musical group that originated during the Voyager spacecraft encounters of Saturn. (M 18646)
