Mbarton98 ,

Great resource to hear whats going on in the night sky.

I'm a new listener and heard about ALPO from Tim Robertson giving a presentation at our local virtual astronomy club meeting.

Michael in western Colorado ,

Great Podcast!!

Hands down...my favorite. Always interesting, I love listening to the guests give their backgrounds in astronomy. Keep up the great work!

Cometman ,

Great podcast for the beginner or professional

The Observer Notebook podcast mixes current astronomical events with learning observing techniques for astronomy.

The host is funny and always asks the questions I would have asked.
