An Astronomical Father's Day

With Sunday marking Father's Day (in many countries), I've taken a Deep Sky Videos approach this year.

Our main video features astronomers Mike Merrifield and Meghan Gray.

They speak about the famous Herschel dynasty - "father figures" of astronomy but also a true father-son-son trilogy of their own.

The questioning also turns to Mike and Meghan's own fathers and some curious personal tales.

Here's the main video:

And because it was all so fascinating, three lots of "extra footage" exploring the various tangents.
