Perfect for amateur

Concise, clear, entertaining and short ! It’s a perfect podcast for anyone wanting to know what’s interesting to look at in the sky. And learn something about astronomy. I ve been looking to reconnect with my love for the stars and this was exactly what I needed .

Outstanding

Brief and to the point. Pleasant music; no jarring or loud jamming here. Mr. Beatty speaks at just the right pace as he explains what to look for and relates facts about what you’re going to see. Thank you.
