The Face of God, episode one with Deborah Byrd of EarthSky

If you’ve ever looked into the night sky and wondered about all those heavenly bodies and their significance to people over the centuries, then you’re not alone. I’ve found an excellent resource to help me understand what I’m seeing. Deborah Byrd is a science communicator and educator who believes in science as a force for good in the world and a vital tool for the 21st century. Out of Austin, TX, Deborah and her team EarthSky “has a blast bringing you updates on your cosmos and the world.” And today, Deborah and I are bringing the night sky to the Cookie Jar.
