Star Gazing LIve 2016

The hugely-popular Stargazing LIVE returns to The University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank Observatory this week. Brian Cox and Dara O Briain return for another celebration of space and astronomy.

Hosted by Professor Brian Cox and comedian Dara O Briain, the astronomy extravaganza last year attracted more than 10 million viewers across three nights.

The show will be broadcast every night at 9pm, culminating in Peake’s first trip out of the ISS since his arrival as he takes on a spacewalk to carry out repairs on the satellite.

Of course, news of Bowie’s passing reached its way to Major Tim, who yesterday posted a tribute to the visionary musician from space – so expect him to come up in conversation as Cox and O Briain find out what Peake has been up to in the ISS.

Amateur astronomers across the country are getting involved. Novices and stargazing fanatics alike are set to attend one of the numerous star parties – organised by BBC Learning and partners – taking place during January and whilst Stargazing LIVE is on air.
