Program Description:

Florida’s skies are special. Broad vistas frame low-slung horizons that are crowned with a lush blue canopy and cleansed by fresh ocean breezes. Clearly, the heavens above Florida are unique, whether seen by day or night. In our area, Florida nights come alive thanks to “Skywatch,” a brief, informative, daily radio series presented by Jon Bell, Associate Professor of Astronomy at Indian River State College and, since it opened in 1993, the director of the school’s Hallstrom Planetarium. Bell’s radio programs give listeners tips on observable stellar phenomena and alert them to earth science facts that provide an “inside track” on our beautiful planet and the place it holds in a vast universe.
