The Sky @ Night 700th Edition


Here is a taste of what is to come. I was privileged to be a part of the 700th edition of “The Sky at Night” … recorded last Thursday.

To be transmitted … soon!

In addition to the usual brilliant team, you’ll see that Brian Cox joined in the discussion … and I have to say it was a joy to meet him for the first time. Brian has to be the best thing that has happened to the communication of British Astronomy since the Daddy of them all – Patrick Moore. So it was very special to see the two of them interacting. Brian, like me, cites a Patrick Moore book as his first inspiration to be an astronomer. You will see!

Here many of the participants in the 700th are pictured on the set of the show … at Sir Patrick’s house in Selsey.
