This is the 26th episode of the Urban Astronomer Podcast, where we get back to our original focus of interviewing people involved in South African astronomy. Whether they’re professional or amateur, South African, or merely visiting to do astronomy under our clear skies through our world-class observatories, we want to talk to them. In this episode, we chat with Neville Young.
Neville has been a member of the Pretoria center of the Astronomical Society of South Africa since the mid-1980’s. He is a familiar face at local outreach events and makes a range of teaching models to explain the dynamics of the Solar System. He even wrote a very popular astronomy book that sold extremely well across the country. He was kind enough to provide me a copy which I’ll be giving away to one of you dear listeners!
Giveaway: Astronomy With Reach
As described in the podcast, I have a copy of Neville’s book, Astronomy Within Reach, which I’d like to give away to one lucky listener. If you want it, just send me an email to [email protected] and tell me a little about yourself and what you enjoy about the show. I will pick a winner at random, and send off a copy, by 28 February 2018.
