Astrophiz 157: Dr Ian Musgrave’s October SkyGuide & Smashing Spacecraft


Enjoy your regular monthly treat of viewing tips for all naked-eye celestial observers, telescopers, and astrophotographers from Dr @IanfMusgrave, amateur astronomer, molecular pharmacologist and toxicologist. 
Ian gives us all the viewing highlights and what to look out for in our morning and evening skies and the dates to best observe Jupiter’s closest approach since 1963 and Jupiter’s beautiful Galilean moons. In Ian’s tangent we hear about Smashing Spacecraft, including those that have accidentally or deliberately smashed into planets, those that have smashed into asteroids like the recent DART mission, and those that have smashed projectiles into asteroids to collect and return dust particles back to earth for analysis.
It’s a long and interesting smashing history that Ian reveals. Enjoy!
