StarDate is the longest-running science feature in the country. It began as a telephone message service and soon went on the air in Austin as a daily radio program, “Have You Seen the Stars Tonight?” With a new name and a grant from the National Science Foundation, the series began national distribution in 1978.

Each month, the program offers a balance of astronomy and space-science topics. About half of each month’s programs are related to skywatching: eclipses, meteor showers, planetary conjunctions, stars and constellations and so on.
