Dara O’Briain and Brian Cox – hosting a live broadcast of Star Gazing Live during the Solar Eclipse on Friday morning.
Star gazing Live is back this week – covering the eclipse as well as the Rosetta mission with Matt Taylor and manned space exploration with Buzz Aldrin.
Try to organise something in your school if you can – even if it is just watching the live video feed from the Faroe Islands (which is where the umbra will fall during totality). The UK will be treated to about 90% totality (we will lie in the penumbra).
Some information on the eclipse and about viewing times can be found on MeteorWatch here and some methods for viewing from the IOP on the last pages of this month’s Classroom Physics
