Welcome to StargazingLIVE 2012!


The Nene Valley Astronomical Society is once again pleased to be a

partner organisation of the BBC Stargazing Live.


On the three consecutive evenings beginning on 16th January, the BBC Stargazing LIVE event will be broadcast on BBC2.   Presented by Dara O'Briain and Brian Cox, the programmes take a popular look at stargazing and how to get involved.  In order to bring the event to as many people as possible, the BBC has teamed up with local astronomical societies around the country to offer the chance to find out more and have a look through a telescope at some of the objects that will be discussed on the programmes.  The Nene Valley Astronomical Society is a partner organisation offering events in the East Northamptonshire area.
