This is inspired by my animation movie My Dad the Supernova, a very touching story about an astronomer suffering Alzheimer's disease. He is interviewed by his daughter, who is a radio producer. https://allthingsmoving.com/MyDadtheSupernova

My husband is an astronomy professor, so when I saw the Out of This World challenge, I just KNEW I had to submit. I asked him for a list of his favorite things in the universe, and had him write out some notes. A few of these fascinating phenomena, like the Pleiades, are visible with the naked eye; others, like the Eagle Nebula, have been photographed beautifully by the Hubble Space Telescope. Some are named for the constellations in which they appear, while others get their names from the objects they resemble. The universe may be mostly made of empty space, but everywhere you look, there's beauty.
Since I had to cancel all my travelling abroad plans this year, I am doing a lot of hiking in my country. This is the fabulous views you get when hiking my favourite valley: Val di Muggio. It's the southernmost valley in Switzerland: wild, unspoiled + full of history. On clear days, you can see Monte Rosa + the Matterhorn.
This map shows a majority of the constellations visible in the Northern Hemisphere. The constellations closer to the center of the map are called “circumpolar,” and can be seen year-round, while those further away from the center can be found in the sky seasonally (depending on location).
Pokhara city, Nepal’s 2nd largest city, by Phewa lake on the foothills of the Annapurna range, is the tourism capital of Nepal and serves as a base for trekking in the Annapurna region. From stunning views of the entire Annapurna range, visiting the international mountain museum, boating at Phewa lake & paragliding at Sarangkot are a few things to do in the mountain city, other than relishing Nepali food. This view is from Raniban hill next to Shanti Stupa (World Peace Pagoda) that overlooks the Himalayan peaks and Pokhara city below.
When I was young I always looked at the sky and imaged to fly to the moon and see all the planets along the galaxy. I've been always curios about our solar system: planets and their orbits around the sun, moon and stars.
