A Lonely Traveler Cruises Through Our Solar System

Every month here at First Light College of DuPage Astronomy professor Joe DalSanto joins First Light host Brian O’Keefe to let you know what you can see in the night sky in the coming weeks. Joe and Brian also take some time to talk about space science. This month, the Night Sky segment includes a discussion of a lonely traveler, a rock from outside our solar system that was first observed about a year ago
