Watch "The Sky at Night" online!

Hey all!

This is super interesting! You can access this BBC website to watch current and past episodes of the monthly BBC TV documentary "The Sky at Night" online, hosted by Sir Patrick Moore. The show features a wide range of astronomical topics including stellar life cycles, radio astronomy, black holes, artificial satellites, neutron stars, and current celestial events such as comets or meteor showers, among others.

According to Wikipedia:
"Sir Patrick Moore is a former president of the British Astronomical Association, co-founder and former president of the Society for Popular Astronomy, author of over 70 books on astronomy, presenter of the longest running television series (with the same original presenter), "The Sky at Night" on the BBC and a famous figure on British television (such as being the Gamemaster). He is well known for his rapid mode of speech, trademark monocle, poorly fitting blazers, extremely high trouser line and a fondness for the xylophone."

You can explore other areas of BBC - Science & Nature: Space website as well. Do make good use of the resource when you have the time (:

Clear skies,
