The Astronomy Show 03.05.17
On the Astronomy Show this week I will be looking at an event which happened about 14,500 years ago when the last ice age finished and ask, Did a comet hit the Earth and push the humans into a technological overdrive? If you want to find out more listen to the show today.
As this is the first show of the month I will be taking a look at the night sky for May. The night sky this week is still dominated by the planet Jupiter, which is the bright white spot in the evening sky. Jupiter will be around for the rest of spring.
The regular features include the astronomy news with the latest from Cassini at Saturn, the A-Z of constellations continues with Corvus the Crow. The Messier Marathon is now at M 26 in Scutum. The ramble through the solar system has now reached Neptune the most distant planet from the Sun. There will also be the astronomical scrapbook plus the latest news from the northern astronomical societies.
