The popular TV programme BBC Stargazing Live 2018 is unfortunately not taking place this year, as confirmed by Dara O’Briain on Twitter. The show, along with the numerous associated stargazing events that take place to coincide with it, will be very much missed by stargazing enthusiasts.
The Go Stargazing Team supported the TV show in 2017 using our website as a resource to help interested people find their nearest stargazing event and we were really looking forward to doing the same in 2018! After all, encouraging people to go stargazing is what we do all year round!
So to fill the gap in 2018 we’ve decided to organise “Go Stargazing Live 2018” — a weekend of public stargazing events taking place across the UK. We’ve chosen dates around the 16th and 17th February as the evening skies will be dark and it coincides with the National Parks Dark Skies Festival 2018 with lots of activities taking place.
Note that this event is not associated with nor endorsed by the BBC.
As can be seen on the map below there’s loads of events happening during this period! So whilst Dara and Professor Cox have some time off we’ll still go stargazing!
For this to be successful we need your help… Please help spread the word by sharing this webpage on Social Media or sharing our event on Facebook. If you are organising your own stargazing event on these dates simply contact us and we’ll happily add it to the schedule.
Thank you for your support… Clear skies!
