Letter: Marker near sundial recognizes Peltier

In response to a previous letter on Leslie Peltier, we do have a marker on his achievements as an astronomer. During Ohio’s bicentennial celebration in 2003, a marker was placed at the Delphos library, beside a sundial, also recognizing his accomplishments and discipline recording the movements of our planets, stars and comets.

Like other historical markers, it is best to park you car and then read his marker outside the library. He was known worldwide and authored several books. The marker may inspire future stargazers as well.
