Looking Up: Happy 250th!

This week Looking Up reaches a milestone episode. For some reason that I’m sure sociologists and anthropologists fully understand, humans tend to like things in nice round numbers, or at least I do. And so, the topic of this week’s episode of Looking Up is, well, Looking Up, as we’ve reached the 250 th edition of our little astronomy show.

Looking Up: Happy 250th!

Looking Up: Mercury In Transition

The planet Mercury will transit the sun on November 11th, and you're invited to the party! Today I want to invite you to a very special party here at KRCC, coming up a week from today. It’s a very special event that rarely happens, and if you miss this one, you’ll have to wait years to see it again. I’m talking about the transit of the planet Mercury across the face of the Sun!

Looking Up: The Ages Of Aquarius

Bruce Bookout steers this week's episode of Looking Up and guides us to the constellation of Aquarius. Constellations are fickle things. Defining what shape you see and what that means is all derivative of your culture and what that pattern appears to be. We call this pareidolia; the tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the observer, such as seeing shapes in clouds or seeing faces on Mars.

Looking Up: The Ages Of Aquarius

Looking Up: Knee High To A Queen

This week on Looking Up Hal kneels at the throne of Cassiopeia in order to pay homage to the star Ruchbah. Today I’d like to tell you about an interesting star, high in the Colorado night sky right now, the star Ruchbah. Ruchbah is the 4 th brightest star in the northern constellation of Cassiopeia. In Arabic, Ruchbah means “the knee” which makes sense, given that Cassiopeia is supposed to be a queen sitting on her throne.

Looking Up: Backup Is Just A Wobble Away

This week on Looking Up Hal goes to Plan B, which is always good to have if you're heading into outer space. I don’t know about you, but I like to have backups for things in my life. I carry an extra pen, and I like to have a backup plan if I’m going out. So, it seems reasonable that we have a backup north star, or pole star.

Looking Up: My Very Existential Mother Just Served Us Noodles

This week on Looking Up we go on a planet hunt with Hal. How many of the 8 planets can you see? (sorry, Pluto fans, there are 8). I admit, it is a bit of a trick question. But the month of October is an especially great month for planet watching, in which you can see SIX of the 8 planets, though you’ll need a telescope to see some of them.

Looking Up: Scooting Off To Scutum

This week on Looking Up we are 'shielded' from ignorance about the constellation Scutum, thanks to Bruce Bookout. The night sky contains many odd objects besides the menagerie of strange creatures. This time of year, in our southwestern sky, you will find a “shield” of stars. The shield is the constellation Scutum.

Looking Up: Tilt A Whirld

Happy Autumnal Equinox from Looking Up! Today marks the September Equinox. Most folks have heard of the two equinox events we have every year, the beginning of spring, with the Spring Equinox in March, and the Fall Equinox that falls in September. And today’s the big day. So, what does that actually mean?

Looking Up: Dolphin Dreams

On Looking Up this week we hear about a diamond encrusted dolphin visible in the late summer skies above Colorado. Quite often on these broadcasts, I talk about things that are really big. Heck, the universe is pretty large, so it makes sense that lots of big and cool things are out there. But today I want to talk with you about one of the tiniest of the constellations, Delphinus the Dolphin.

Looking Up: A Not So Tiny Dancer

Tonight's the night for a tiny dot of light to dance across the sky in full opposition of the sun, as we learn on Looking Up. Tonight is a special night for a tiny dot of light, and today’s episode could be titled “far out,” because the dot of light I want to tell you about is the magnificent planet Neptune.
