The current episode of the Jodcast

If you want to learn more about astronomy and in particular the research we do here in Manchester and at Jodrell Bank then visit our Discovery Centre at Jodrell Bank Observatory. We organise events ranging from star parties to public lectures in the Lovell Lecture series.

The Discovery Centre also has an extensive educational programme for schools.

The Jodcast is a podcast or on-line radio show by astronomers at Jodrell Bank including the latest news, what is in the sky this month, interviews with guest astronomers and anything else we can think of!

The Night Sky This Month gives a what's on guide to astronomical events occuring in the sky this month. We also provide information on the ways in which you can observe the night sky.

The Earth and Beyond section of the Children's University of Manchester website includes a range of interactives designed to teach basic astronomy concepts including day and night, the planets, and phases of the Moon.
