If so, Back Garden Astronomy Week is the perfect time to get outside and get looking up at the night sky.

From Saturday 2 – Sunday 10 February we’re inviting people with curious minds, families with kids who love space and those who’ve always wanted to get started in stargazing to join our week-long campaign.

Sign up for free and each day we’ll send you an email newsletter that will help you discover a new sight every night.

We’ll show you how to find some of the beautiful objects visible in the night sky, all of which can be seen from your back garden with just a pair of binoculars.

You’ll also receive essential observing tips that beginners need: advice like how to get your eyesight used to the dark, how best to navigate the night sky and which are the best targets to see.
