StarDate Susitna 4-1-2012


Crescent Moon near Venus, with Jupiter below. Taken by Kathleen with a digital point-and-shoot camera on March 26, 2012.



In this April Fool’s edition of StarDate Susitna, host and producer Kathleen Fleming begins by talking about the waxing-to-full moon this week. She continues to expand her listeners’ knowledge of Venus, with a discussion of Venutian cycles, and the ancient Mayans’ understanding of them. She also explains why Venus, as a thinning crescent this month, actually gets brighter. How can this be? Audio is ten minutes.
