Re: The Sky at Night Appreciation Thread

Very sad news indeed. I have to say that he looked and sounded very frail while presenting his final show, which was shown earlier this week. But I've got to thank him for influencing my interest in astronomy. I've no doubt the show will continue, and I'm very interested to see who the new main pres...

Re: Belt of Venus and weather

It would be great to see in Celestia, but I've got to admit I'd never heard of the Belt of Venus until it was listed as one of the 55 heavenly objects to try and observe during April this year, as part of the Moore's Marathon from the Sky at Night TV show. It's something I've seen countless times du...

Neil Armstrong

Re: Venus Transit

Hello All, I hope some of you managed to actually see the transit. Would loved to have seen it, but a combination of cloudy weather, tall trees and a 200ft hillside rising due east from the end of my garden meant it was an impossibility. I would have had a 1 hour window (approx) to see it, starting ...

Chris North is an Oxford chappie? He certainly studied cosmology at Oxford, and that is where he met Chris Lintott, and got involved as an Astronomy Researcher for the Sky At Night. After studying at Oxford, he moved onto Cardiff University where he was part of the ESA's PLANCK and HERSCHEL mission...

Can't believe a year has gone by since my last post about The Sky at Night 8O In the meantime we had the 700th anniversary programme. Sir Patrick is still presenting the show, although his speech is becoming quite hard to understand now. I'm also wondering if Lintott is going to be a regular present...
