BBC Two's Stargazing is back in January and Kielder Observatory will be involved! There's a chance for you to take part too.

The National Trust property, Gibside, at Burnhopfield near Gateshead, is staying open late on the Monday 16 January for a night of celestial family fun.

Join the BBC and local astronomical groups to gaze skywards, hear space-themed music as you've never heard it before and help children build a solar system, make a comet and shoot a rocket to the heavens. Kielder Observatory will be running an Aurora-Hunting workshop - find out how to see these elusive light displays in the North-East of England!

BBC cameras will be there too capturing the night under the stars.

Booking is essential so click on the link below to apply for tickets - and we'll see you there!
