365 Days of Astronomy 13 Sep 2009, 00:00 UTC Have you ever wondered why we always see the same side of the Moon? Did you know that the Moon only rotates once each time it orbits the Earth? Today’s Podcast will explore the relationships between the Earth and the Moon. The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of 2009. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of 2009.
