Discover the sky at night using binoculars and telescopes and learn how to navigate the night sky.
The BBC has inspired a whole host of astronomers and stargazers to look to the skies this New Year in a season of events and programmes headed up by Prof. Brian Cox.
In January 2011, we will be hosting a Stargazing LIVE event in the National Botanic Garden of Wales where total beginners, amateur astronomers and professional stargazers will get a chance to explore the night sky.
You’ll be sharing the experience with tens of thousands of fellow stargazers as part of the nationwide extravaganza that is tied into the new BBC Two show Stargazing LIVE. In this three-day, stripped event, which aired during the first week of January 2011, Professor Brian Cox was joined by Dara O'Briain as the pair looked to the skies to bring the wonders of the stars into our living rooms. In addition, Liz Bonnin was reporting from Hawaii and astronomer Mark Thompson was carrying out live observations.
Come along and take part in exploring the night sky!
Dress warmly and if you have binoculars and a camera bring them with you.
