Explore the universe live with Planetarium Astronomer Scott Young. Find constellations and planets in the real sky, and explore space science with hands-on activities and experiments. As pioneering Canadian astronomer Helen Sawyer Hogg always said, “The stars belong to everyone.” Learn how to find your stars and get to know the night sky.

In this week’s episode, we’ll focus on the planet with the most unfortunate name in the solar system: Uranus. Dimly visible to the unaided eye, this week it is close to Mars in the sky, making it the best time to try and spot it. It’s also the 35th anniversary of the first robotic flyby of Uranus. What do we know about this strange planet?

Plus, we’ll start creating our solar system scale model, and listen to the conclusion of our epic constellation story from the last two episodes.
