[email protected]: Episode One
January 7 | 7 PM CST
In this week’s episode, we’ll explore the planets Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, three of the planets visible to the unaided eye. Learn the latest about these mysterious worlds, including the possibilities of life on their surfaces, in their atmospheres, or on their nearby moons. Plus, make a sky shield to help you see the real stars better, and learn to tell time by the stars.
[email protected]: Episode 2
January 14 | 7 PM CST
In this week’s episode, we’ll explore our nearest neighbour in space: the Moon. Discover the pattern behind the moon’s changing appearance, and explore the craters of the moon up close through a telescope. Plus, find constellations and planets in the night sky.
[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.
