NOVA: "THE PLANETS: SATURN"
January 22, 2020  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
Last week, this Nova survey of the planets in our solar system began with Jupiter. Now we’re looking at Saturn. The order of planets being presented clearly, in the long run, is neither alphabetical nor in the placement of orbit around the sun. So is it size? Many of you amateur astronomers, or readers with basic knowledge of basic science and facts, may know the answer of that already. But I’m confused, without looking it up. What about Uranus? Check local listings.

When these episodes debuted last year, PBS aired them in order beginning with the planets closest to the sun and moving outward, if I remember correctly. Not sure why they’re jumping around this time.
