Clear skies forecast for Stargazing Live 2012


Stargazing Live 2012 will see Dara Ó Briain and Professor Brian Cox presenting live from Jodrell Bank Observatory on the 16 – 18 January. There’s also local Stargazing Live events taking place around the UK.

Astronomers will be hoping for clear skies for the event, and the forecast is looking promising. The majority of the country is set to be relatively cloud free over the weekend and through the early part of next week, although there is a risk of fog obscuring visibility in some areas. But with the clear skies comes a drop in temperature and night time temperatures may be as low as -6 °C for some.

If you’re planning on heading to a local event, our new beta site maps allow you to view the forecast cloud cover for your area. Links to the forecasts for local stargazing locations are below.
