Stargazing Live!

Don’t forget to watch Stargazing Live tonight (BBC2 9pm).  Professor Brian Cox will be talking with British astronaut Tim Peake as he orbits 250 miles above the Earth. There will also be a report on the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, showing how Tim Peake prepared for his trip to the ISS, and guide to the night sky. More details can be seen  here .

A little bit late – but here is a montage picture of the Lunar eclipse from September 2015.  I took these between around 01:00 am and 03:00 am.  A Lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the shadow of the Earth, and the orange/red colour is due to refracted light from the Earth’s atmosphere.DPP_0001
