Stargazing with the Family

Grab your coats, wrap up warm and get outside this month to join in stargazing events (or just head out to your back garden) across the UK. Many science centres, planetariums and observatories host special stargazing events where you can learn more and watch stars in the nights’ sky, but book ahead as these are always popular!

If you want to be able to read the stars or spot certain planets you can visit BBC Stargazing to get a guide on how to map stars and much more! Plus if you want to get the kids excited about spotting the International Space Station, check this site updated by Mission Control at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas that will alert you when you can spot ISS passing your door.www.spotthestation.nasa.gov

If you are in London, check out the National Maritime Museum’s exhibition Astronomy Photographer of the Year showcasing the world’s greatest space photography and runs until 7th August 2022.
