The Astronomy Show 26.04.17
On the Astronomy Show this week I will be looking at the close encounter of the Cassini kind as the NASA probe dives between the atmosphere of Saturn and the rings. The results should be fantastic but it is dangerous. Find out why this afternoon.
I am starting a new monthly feature I will be taking a flick through the pages of the two main British astronomical magazines Astronomy Now and Sky at Night as they become available towards the end of each month to see what they are featuring.
The regular features of the show include the A-Z of constellations this week Corona Borealis the Northern Crown while the Messier marathon continues with M 25 in Sagittarius.The astronomical scrapbook looks at what happened this week in history astronomically speaking. This together with details of astronomy meetings in the North.
