Hosts: Jesse, Paul
Title: Jesse’s Excellent Arizonan Adventures!

After two weeks off, due to Ontario’s statutory holiday Family Day, the York Universe team returns.

The Moon dominated the conversation with Yutu, a car sized object impacting (caught in real time), and of course the Moon and the planets in the night sky for your viewing pleasure.
