March 2017

This month we welcome the start of Daylight Saving Time and the Spring Equinox! Through our discussion of the March 4th Occultation of the Moon and the star Aldebaran, we take a closer look at Occultations, Transits, and Eclipses. Listen to learn what these terms mean and how they differ. Also, hear how observing Transits led to NASA’s recent discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets! As always, we encourage listeners to visit our Observatory on Friday nights for free star gazing and to further discuss the information in this episode with our staff.
