MANX SKY AT NIGHT APRIL 2020

Manx Sky at Night

Sunday, April 26th, 2020 - 28 minutes

In order to maintain social distancing, Howard can't be in the Manx Radio studios for this month's edition of the Manx Sky at Night, so instead he's recorded a programme at his home in Onchan! First he takes us into the garden to do some actual stargazing - listen to this podcast outdoors at about 10pm on a clear night, using your smartphone or tablet, and Howard will guide you round the night skies during May - then we're back indoors for the second part of the podcast, as Howard brings us up to date with the latest space exploration news. There's also information about the new series of half hour sessions, called The Universe from the Isle of Man, which Howard is offering as part of the #LockdownLearning programme being offered by the University College Isle of Man - free sessions on a variety of subjects, available via Zoom - something to interest everyone during this time when we're staying at home.
