Special about Discovery Channel Telescope coming to TV and classrooms -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

The Discovery Channel has put a spotlight on the mysteries beyond our own atmosphere for over two decades, and now the network has decided it’s about time they have their own telescope.

That telescope was completed earlier this year and is now fully operational in its home near Flagstaff, Ariz. EW can exclusively report that Discovery Channel will feature the new window to the stars in a new special called Scanning the Skies: The Discovery Channel Telescope.

Set to air on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m., the program will document the construction of the telescope, featuring interviews with astronomers from Lowell Observatory, where the Discovery Channel Telescope is based.
