The sky has many beautiful phenomena caused by the interaction of light with the air: blue skies, red sunsets, rainbows, glories, haloes, green flashes, sun dogs and blue moons. We will see pictures of these and learn where to see them and how they are formed. We will also see and learn about a blue sky on Saturn, murky sunsets on Mars, the black skies of many moons, and speculations about the skies on some of the more than 5000 exoplanets that have been discovered in recent years.

This is our 10th Astro-Chat with our distinguished guest Professor Don Kurtz. The session will include a brief illustrated introduction followed by questions and answers. Members of the public will be able to ask questions in the live-chat. The event is hosted by Professor Andrei Zvelindovsky, Head of the School of Maths & Physics at the University of Lincoln, UK.
