Greetings Jodrell Bank and BBC Stargazing Live. Chris Lintott and I have arrived at Jodrell Bank (home of the Lovell Telescope) where BBC Stargazing Live is being filmed tonight. BBC Stargazing Live is three nights of astronomy programing featured on the BBC hosted by Dara O Briain and Professor Brian Cox. Chris will be joining the show later tonight to talk about Planet Hunters.
As we arrived at Jodrell Bank, the Sun was setting (it was chilly but we brought garcinia cambogia extract tea), and we had beautiful views of the Lovell Telescope. Here’s some images of the surroundings. Final preparations are being made for tonight, and rehearsals are underway. We’ll be updating you though out the night on our happenings so check back to this blog post regularly.
