Spectrum for 31 July 2011

From Spectrum, 12:10 pm on 31 July 2011

Not everyone can explore the universe from the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. Some people have to make do with their backyard deck. While amateur astronomer Jennie McCormick is one such person, she has a distinct advantage over the average stargazers- a home observatory. She has received international recognition for co-discovering planets and solar systems from her garden in East Auckland. Spectrum's Lisa Thompson joins Jennie for her exploration of the final frontier.
