A rerun of the season 46 episode 1 of Nova titled Pluto and Beyond, an excellent program on the New Horizons probe, preceded the new episode and will be rebroadcast at 1:00 a.m. EDT.

 

(1/2) New Horizons prepares to fly by an object known as MU69 on Jan. 1, 2019, which is expected to be the most distant flyby in NASA's history.

I thought it was funny when they showed a Sky Watcher Dob with what appeared to be a CCD or imaging camera attached to it to get the occultation image of MU69.

 

Everything on a shoestring budget? Man, I think some of our forum’s imagers woulda gladly helped.

 

Just like the 2 guys with a truck, some plywood, a tarp and a battery powered light stepped up to block the wind. Hilarious!!

This was the best episode yet, but then again, Uranus, Neptune,and Pluto are the three planets I have a huge interest in.
