The Shocking Sun

This month's Sky At Night was broadcast last Sunday night. The programme was all about the Sun and the observations that amateurs and professionals make of it. There are some clips of the solar observations made at Patrick Moore's recent star party as well as a chat, with the Astronomer Royal for Scotland, about SOHO and TRACE observations.

As usual, the BBC messed about with the time, so my recording missed the last five minutes of it. Luckily, it gets repeated on Saturday, on BBC 2, so I might catch the end then. For those who do not live in range of a BBC transmitter, you will probably be able to watch it later in the month from the Sky At Night website where they also have previous programmes that you can watch online.
