Take part in a practical introduction to astronomy for beginners and enthusiasts using various instruments and listen to a talk by Dr Andy Newsam from the Astrophysics Research Institute Liverpool John Moores University.
See the stars of the night sky from the comfort of the Starlab, the inflatable planetarium from Daresbury Labs, with Alan Brown.
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 Glyndwr University 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.
