Episode notes

This month we meet the new SPIDER Radio Telescope which has become the latest addition to the Kielder Forest landscape. Director of Astronomy Dan Pye give us a tour, and explains some of the things we will now be able to detect in space with it. 

This addition means that even on a cloudy night, visitors will be able to take in some radio observations, and for schools and universities they will have a new resource to help with research into aspects of space.

We also bring you a full round of of the things to watch out for in the night sky over the final part of 2021.
