#122 – August 2022 Part 1

The Discussion:

The release of JWST’s first images, the press conferences and media coverage.

Emails on astrophotography, Dr Jen’s TV appearances and a more politically correct alternative name for JWST.


The News:

Rounding up the astronomy news in August, we have:

  • We now know why Jupiter doesn’t have rings like Saturn
  • A huge triple star system with a violent past
  • A fossil galaxy – one of the first galaxies from the early universe
  • Some good news for the prospects for life on Mars

The big news story: What else? It’s JWST innit?


The Sky Guide:

This month we’re taking a look at the summer constellation of Cygnus 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 August.



No time for Q&A – we’ve got JWST to prattle on about!
