August 2008

On 1st August 2008 parts of the world experienced a total solar eclipse. In the UK we saw a partial solar eclipse and the Jodcast was at Jodrell Bank Observatory with our eclipse special. We talk to Dr Phillipa Browning about eclipses and the state of our knowledge about the solar atmosphere [15:15 - 21:09] and to Professor Mark Edmonds about the evidence that prehistoric people had an interest in the Sun, Moon and stars. As usual we also get the latest news from Megan [02:35 - 10:59] and find out what you can see in the night sky from Ian [31:50 - 43:10].
