A monthly guide to our dark skies by Geoff Burt
Written by Petersphere resident, astronomical expert and amateur astronomer Geoff Burt, every month Shine Radio presents a Sky Watch of our unique dark skies.
Let Shine Radio open up the wonder of Petersfield’s night skies for magical star-gazing from your doorstep, in Sky Watch.
As we move into Spring, learn how the moon determines the date of Easter, how you can spot Leo, which planets are visible through April and why this month means you might spot some meteors.
