MANX SKY AT NIGHT - FEBRUARY 2023
Manx Sky at Night
Sunday, 5 March 2023 - 29 minutes
We're nearing the end of the 'best' time for stargazing, as the nights become ever-so-slightly lighter for longer - so Astronomer Howard Parkin says 'make the most of these next weeks before the clocks change the end of March!'
There's a brilliant conjunction between Jupiter and Venus in early March - Mars is still bright overhead, and we discuss the exciting prospect of the Aurora Borealis
The music break is Venus by Shocking Blue, and in the second half of the programme Howard brings us up to date with yet more stories of the race to get into space!
Steve Bowen is due to head out on a mission and has promised to look out for the Isle of Man as he passes over us! Howard well remembers Steve's visit here in 2012, and ahead of this latest mission, Howard sent Steve good wishes from everyone on the Island!
