Southern Skies

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


The sky of the Southern Hemisphere may be unfamiliar, but it is actually home to many of the brightest stars, the closest star to Earth, the Magellanic clouds, the Southern Cross, and much more. Join Hayden presenters Irene Pease and Lydia Maria Petrosino as they highlight some of these gems. In this Astronomy Live presentation, you will also visit the new observatories soon to populate the Southern Hemisphere; and learn why we in the North see different skies and whether the North Star has a southern counterpart.
