Over three nights in January 2011, the BBC is broadcasting a series of special programmes introducing people to the world of stargazing and amateur astronomy. All across the country astronomical societies will be holding events to support the project. This blog will tell you all about the events taking place in Cumbria!


Looking forward to “Stargazing LIVE”
