The Astronomy Show 24.02.20

The Astronomy Show 24.02.20

On the Astronomy Show today I will be looking at news that China's Yutu 2 mission to the far side of the |Moon has been making some strange and fascinating discoveries.

I will look at the night sky for the next 7 nights plus I will take an early look at the night sky for March.

Some of the other news stories this week include Mars InSight Lander's Heat Probe has been stuck for a year-but NASA has a new plan, Jupiter water mystery updated with findings from NASA Juno spacecraft, and  Saturn's moon Titan just failed a key test for alien life.

The astronomical scrapbook this week looks at the Black Saturday eclipse of 1582, in 1943 H D Taylor died he invented the Cooke portrait lens and in 1504 an eclipse of the Moon helped Columbus come back safely from the Carribbean. All this plus the usual round up of what is happening in the astronomical societies in the North of England.

The Astronomy Show every Monday evening between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm only on Drystone Radio 103.5 FM. The show can be heard live at or you can hear the show later on the Drystone Radio podcast

Due to a variety of factors including hospital visits the next Astronomy Show is scheduled for Monday April 6th.
