The Outer planets| HD TV broadcast

1/10/ 2014 | The Outer Planets from Richard Pearson on Vimeo.

I would like to thank professor Kunio Sayanagi & Trevor Barry for all their help while making this program. We do not often hear about the outer planets, now is a good time because there is interesting things happening in the weather systems of the planets Saturn & Uranus which is causing excitement among planetary astronomers. In addition, the planet Neptune was at opposition on 1 September 2014 and Uranus will be at opposition on 7 October. A planet is at opposition when it lies opposite to the Sun in the sky, and is therefore best placed for observation.
