Posted on 17 January 2012

Keele Observatory will open its doors to the public this week as part of the BBC2 Stargazing Live 2012 events.

Stargazing LIVE returns for a second three-night series on BBC Two which is set to encourage everyone - from the complete beginner to the enthusiastic amateur - to make the most of the night sky.

Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain will broadcast live from the control room of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, interacting live with the audience and calling on a starry collection of the country's finest astronomical minds to explore the majestic wonders of the skies above Britain.

In their own unique style, the pair will tackle some of the most intriguing questions in astronomy, such as Why Does The Moon Cause The Tides?, How Do We Know Where Black Holes Are When They Are Impossible To See? and What Will We Actually Say If We Ever Make Contact With An Alien Race?
