The Astronomy Show 22.11.17

The Astronomy Show 22.11.17

On the Astronomy Show today it is planet Earth that is in the news, I will be looking at new research that suggests that a tiny slow down in the speed of the Earth's rotation might be responsible for the increase in the number of earthquakes.

The regular features include visiting the constellation of Lepus the Hare in the A-Z of constellations, the Messier Marathon is now at M 48 in Hydra the Water Snake one of the famous 'missing' messier objects. There will be the astronomical news this week and we dive into the astronomical scrapbook looking at what happened this week in history including the first observation of a Transit of Venus and the discovery of a comet in York by Edward Pigott. There will of course also be our review of what is happening in the astronomical societies in the north.

The Astronomy Show only on Drystone Radio every Wednesday from 3 00 pm to 5.00 pm on 103.5 FM you can hear me live on line at www.drystoneradio.com or hear the show on the drystone podcast.
