BBC Stargazing Live at Royal Holloway

A crowd of around 7,000 turned up to discover the world of astronomy with BBC Stargazing Live at Royal Holloway on Thursday 9 January.

The main event for the BBC Two series, which saw the University campus come alive with astronomy amateurs, enthusiasts and experts, was hosted by comedian and science presenter Helen Arney and TV astronomer Mark Thompson who broadcast a live starcast and other highlights to the BBC Two show.

The night’s entertainment included fun, space-themed activities such as the chance to train like an astronaut, become an interplanetary weather reporter, build a universe from Lego, and view the night sky through specialist telescopes.
