Sky at Night programme
« on: Jan 11, 2017, 09:57:21 »
     Did anybody see the Sky at Night programme last Sunday about the Gaia mapping probe and the "weird" stars? This is well worth watching and it`s repeated on Thursday on BBC4 at 7.30pm. So, have a look at the Milky Way map from Gaia... it is fantastic; so detailed it`s almost scary. The weird stars are amazing as well.... the whole programme is brilliant.

     There you are ... fire up the telly on Thursday and settle down for some fantastic viewing.

     Cheers, Doug.
Always look on the bright side of life ...

Yes Doug, we saw the episode which we recorded from Sunday.  We thought it was excellent too and overall they had put all the items together very well. One of the best programmes they have done - highly recommended!

It really was an interesting episode.  I also took the opportunity to catch up on the "Highlights of 2016" episode.
