Podcast Advent – 365 Days of Astronomy

Podcast Advent Day 1

It’s the Christmas season and with that comes the season of Advent. Advent is a time of year when we look forward to Christmas and reflect upon the gift of Christ’s birth. This is usually marked off by lighting candles (weekly or daily) and calendars full of chocolate. It usually also includes some kind of devotional. I’m not going to provide a devotional but what I do plan to offer this month may be of interest to you.

This advent I thought I would provide a virtual calendar of podcasts that may interest you. These are all podcasts that I listen to currently and/or highly recommend that you listen to if your intrests align with the hosts.

The 365 Days of Astronomy podcast will start things off. Since it was a star that signaled the birth of our King I thought it appropriate to start by looking to the skies.

There are three things I like about this podcast: it’s short (about 10 minutes), it’s hosted by a different person every day, and it’s about space.

The podcast was originally started in 2009 to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy and has contined to this day. Each day a different person from around the world shares a little bit of astronomy knowledge. I especially enjoy hearing from astronomers in the Southern hemisphere. They describe things that we can see in our sky.

Many different astronomical topics are covered every day from naked-eye observations to astronomer biographies. You’re sure to find something that will pique your interest. Give it a listen today.
