Quarantine Live Stream: The Moon

Live streams about the Moon from the week of March 30th.

Historical note: in March of 2020, a pandemic swept over planet Earth. It was (and at the time of this writing), a bizarre time to be alive.

The world has shut down. We are told to stay indoors and work from home if you can to contain the spread of the virus. I had plans through 2020 to put on more public events and workshops, but that is certainly on ice at this moment.

Early on in quarantine, I decided to start doing live streams about astronomy and space. Each week, I choose a general topic and every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I do a brief 15-ish minute stream on that topic.

At the end of each week, I will make a post that collects the recordings. Enjoy!
