Great Podcast for Beginners of Astronomy

It’s even a great podcast for those who aren’t beginners and just want a brief on what will be visible that month. The podcast is released at the beginning of each month and describes celestial happening from meteor showers to moon phases. The narrator is down to Earth but keeps looking up! Five stars, nine planets, etc.

Fantastic for amateur astronomers!

Straightforward information on what to see in the night sky, when, and where in relation to easy to find celestial objects. A bit of background information on names keeps it fun, very useful for amateur astronomers!
