    Stargazing LIVE (co-produced by The Open University) returns for a second three-night series on BBC Two set to encourage everyone ? from the complete beginner to the enthusiastic amateur ? to make the most of the night sky.

    Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain will broadcast live from the control room of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, interacting live with the audience and calling on a starry collection of the country?s finest astronomical minds to explore the majestic wonders of the skies above Britain.

    In their own unique style, the pair will tackle some of the most intriguing questions in astronomy, such as Why Does The Moon Cause The Tides?, How Do We Know Where Black Holes Are When They Are Impossible To See? and What Will We Actually Say If We Ever Make Contact With An Alien Race?

    Closer to home, there will also be hints and tips for getting started in Stargazing and advice on navigating your way around the skies.

    And there's more, with scores of Stargazing LIVE activities across the UK – find out where at Things To Do, the BBC's activity finder website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/thingstodo/activity/a-night-with-the-stars-02
