Stargazing – In one of the most exciting weeks of the astronomical calendar, professor Brian Cox looks to the heavens, exploring the skies live on air in a special TV event.
In his own inimitable fashion, Brian shows how anyone can be an astronomer, as he encourages the audience to set off on their own journey of discovery.
From the South African Large Telescope (one of the strongest telescopes in the world), Brian interacts live with the audience at home to bring incredible images from two stunning events, the Quadrantid Meteor Shower and the spectacularly rare Partial Solar Eclipse.
Throughout, he answers questions, using demonstrations and real-time astronomical images to guide the nation’s amateur astronomers across the skies.
