"What's Up - July" , the monthly amateur astronomy themed podcast is
up on the public JPL website http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/
. I'm the host

Here's What's Up for July will be archived here, but it's in the
process of getting on the page now and we're on our way to Yosemite
in 15 minutes.
The video is only 2 minutes long and is packed with great amateur
images of planets and more. You'll find some simple (aimed at the
general public) downloadable sky charts, links to NASA amateur
astronomy networks, and this is where the What's Ups are archived.
There are several different download options for museum, planetarium,
astronomy club, classroom and National Parks :-) use. And you can
download these right onto your video iPOD too. If you use them in
any way, let me know!
