Saturday stargazing on TV

Students are invited to stop studying for their degree and study the night’s sky instead this Saturday evening.

‘Stargazing Oxford’, an event to be held from 2-10pm at the Department of Physics will be featured on BBC Two’s Stargazing Live programme.

People will be able to take part in activities for free, such as taking a tour of the night’s sky in an inflatable planetarium.

Another attraction advertised by the University is “Discover ‘astrocrafts’; make your own cardboard telescopes, satellites, and a working spectrograph out of a cereal box to see what light is made of.”
