Learn to identify the brightest stars, planets, and constellations overhead each month, as Chabot College Astronomy Professor Scott Hildreth gives you a personal tour of the sky on your iPod or favorite MP3 player. Each short episode will highlight a few bright objects you can see, without a telescope, around 9 or 10 PM at night early in the month. And the comnpanion website (http://www.chabotcollege.edu/faculty/shildreth/astronomy/skycasts/index.htm) provides skymaps and links.
