120114 - BBC Stargazing Live

Postby Matt Smith » Sat Jan 14, 2012 11:26 am

The BBC's Stargazing Live events begin today. There are 375 events listed on their page here. BIMS member Graham Ensor is providing a meteorite display for the Stargazing Oxford event at Oxford University, to quote the web-page "A winter festival of all things space-related!". The BBC page only seems to allow you to search by location or date, but if you spot any more meteorite related events please feel free to add them to this forum thread.
