The Discussion:

  • Jeni Nearly joined a cult
  • Farewell to Carolyn Shoemaker
  • The Room of Doom at Redditch Astronomical Society
  • The new updated Sky Guide app (that Jen works on)
  • Listeners’ emails on how annoying we are and nebulae


The News: Rounding up the astronomy news in September, we have:

  • A new classification of habitable exoplanets
  • Astronomers find thousands of new galaxies
  • Red Dwarf stars might not be as hostile to life as previously thought
  • Have we found a new spiral arm to the Milky Way?
  • Why last year’s Comet ATLAS wasn’t the comet of a generation


The Sky Guide: This month we’re taking a look at the constellation of Aquarius with a guide to its history, how to find it, a couple of deep sky objects and a round-up of the solar system views on offer in September.


Q&A: Why is the CMB microwave light still visible if it was first emitted 13billion-ish years ago? From our good friend Graeme Durden of Kent in the UK.
