Asteroid (14071) Gadabird

Anonymous's picture

Bonnie Bird (b.1947- ) and Andreas Gada (b.1952- ) are amateur astronomers in Toronto who were married in 1982. It is because of their hard work and leadership that the annual "Starfest" event has become such a tremendous success since it was first held in 1982. Both are active in the North York Astronomical Association, and Bird began work as Executive Secretary of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada in 1997.
