It has been officially announced that the popular BBC Stargazing Live TV show will be on our screens once again on the 28th, 29th and 30th March 2017. This year the team will be broadcasting live from Australia.
To coincide with the television program there are a number of stargazing events held across the whole of the UK. Numerous Astronomical Societies and Observatories open their doors to the public. National Parks and local councils arrange special events. There are lots of opportunities to get outside in the great outdoors and go stargazing. It’s a fantastic experience to be under dark skies looking through telescopes whilst learning about the Universe we live in.
Go Stargazing helps people find stargazing events all year round. Our ambition is to promote Astronomy to as wide as audience as possible. We help amateur astronomers, astronomical societies and observatories raise awareness of themselves and the great things they do. You can find stargazing events taking place near you any time using our events map or calendar. You can also register to receive email notifications of stargazing events in your local area and follow us on Facebook. Please keep coming back as we are always adding new events!
The map below shows stargazing events taking place during the BBC Stargazing Live 2017 dates from 27th March through 2nd April. We will continue to add events to this map as we hear about them.
If you organise stargazing events and would like your events shown here simply send an email to [email protected] and include the website address detailing the event in your message.
The BBC have also created an official list of partner events on their Stargazing Live website.
