MANX SKY AT NIGHT - NOVEMBER 2021
Manx Sky at Night
Sunday, 5 December 2021 - 30 minutes
Now that the clocks have moved back, we have longer dark nights - perfect for star gazing when the skies are clear!
Howard Parkin describes what we can hope to see in the skies during December - and there are hopeful signs, too - as some of the planets of Spring are beginning to appear.
After a break for music from Enya (Shepherd Moons) Howard has the latest space exploration news - we talk in detail about the much-misunderstood recent DART Mission, and there's good news - and some fascinating technical information - about the new Webb Telescope.
Howard welcomes your questions - and you can order a signed copy of his best-selling book - by emailing him - email@example.com
