[email protected]: Episode 3
January 21 | 7 PM CST

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. This week is also the 35th anniversary of the first robotic flyby of Uranus. What do we know about this strange planet that is the butt of so many jokes? 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.
