Erich Karkoschka (born 1955) is a planetary researcher at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory of the University of Arizona. He discovered a satellite of Uranus, S/1986 U 10 (later named Perdita) on photographs taken by the Voyager 2 spacecraft. He has assembled a number of movies including: the Huygens landing on the Titan moon, the seasonal patterns on Uranus, and a rare triple eclipse on Jupiter.
His book, The Observer's Sky Atlas, has been translated into several languages as a resource for those interested in observing the sky.
