X Manx Sky at Night

Monday, 31 January 2022 - 29 minutes

Astronomer Howard Parkin describes what will be visible - in the right weather conditions - in our Manx dark skies during the month of February.  After a rather unusual music break (you have to listen and work out the space connection!) Howard gives an update on the latest activities in space - he reports on the progress of the amazing Webb Telescope, and talks more about Starlink -  set to make the Internet more accessible than ever, and the Isle of Man will play an important part in its development.  There's news too  about the first Axiom mission - the first private space station, which might be launched in just a few weeks' time.
If you have any questions for Howard to answer in the next edition of the programme - on the final Sunday of February - you can email him - howardparkin@manx.net
