The 365 Days of Astronomy Theme Song

George Hrab wrote the theme song for the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast, but the version used at the start of each day’s episode is a shortened version of the whole thing.  Now he’s put the whole
MP3 up on his blog for everyone to hear… and it’s funny.

All In One

I have a couple of old favorite podcasts, Astronomy Cast (by Dr. Pamela Gay and Frasier Cain) and The Jodcast (by the University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank ).  Of course in IYA2009 I’m adding 365DaysOfAstronomy to that list.

Now, in a wonderful all-in-one, the January 2009 Jodcast talks to Dr. Gay about the 365DaysOfAstronomy.

365 Days of Astronomy

The 365 Days of Astronomy podcast is up and running. If you haven’t heard of this yet, it’s a great way to celebrate the IYA2009.

Every day in 2009 a short podcast will be published on some topic of astronomy. Some of them will be deep, technical and produced by heavy hitters. Others will be humorous, light-hearted, and aimed at a different audience. Some (like mine on February 13) will be aimed at a specific demographic, and others will be broad-based with wider appeal.

So far two podcasts have been published: A welcome message on January 1 and on January 2, Jeff Setzer posted “Tips for Using Your First Telescope

So fire up iTunes or your favorite feed reader, and begin listening in. I plan to make it part of my daily routine in 2009.
