Stargazing LIVE returns to BBC Two between the 16th-18th of January 2012.  In 2011 the series, presented by Professor Brian Cox,  was a huge success and inspired over 300 Stargazing events run by amateur societies up and down the country and included sidewalk astronomy, star parties and talks and presentations.

In 2012 the BBC is again inviting astronomy societies and groups to host events all across the UK.
