Obituary

Václav Bumba was born on 14 August 1925 in Domažlice, in western Bohemia, in what was then Czechoslovakia. In 1936, he began his studies at the gymnasium in Klatovy and passed the secondary school final examination there in 1944. From the age of 16, he began regular daily observations of planets, deep sky objects, and sunspots together with his classmates, for which they used small telescopes that he assembled himself or bought later on.
