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.
This month, with the Autumn Equinox, we prepare for a new observing season.
September’s final Supermoon will take place toward the end of the month and the Morning Star puts on a dazzling display.
Find out more in this month’s Sky Watch.
