And with scores of Stargazing LIVE events occurring across the UK throughout January and February 2013, there will be some incredible opportunities for making the most of the night sky.
Some of the topics covered in this series include: A special look at Mars exploration. Dara and Brian reveal how the depths of space can shine a light on the distant past. And on the third episode: Dara and Brian discuss meteors, asteroids and comets and their surprising secrets. – a subject many visitors to meteorwatch.org will find very interesting with all the other topics covered.
