MANX SKY AT NIGHT - AUGUST 2019

Manx Sky at Night

Monday, August 26th, 2019 - 28 minutes

Howard Parkin is loving the darker nights - perfect for star gazing and planet-spotting!
In this month's edition, Howard looks at the vital importance of the planets, and tells a few of the legends attached to some of them.
September will be a good month to look at the Moon - Howard has the best dates and times - and he teaches us a few more lunar terms!
As usual there's a space update - the International Space Station will once again be visible in the Manx Sky in September - and the race to get unmanned and manned spacecraft into orbit, is on - but who will be first?
This month's song is Harvest Moon by Neil Young
