The Sky Tonight Live
Come on a fantastic tour of what you can see for yourself in tonight's night sky. Presented live by a Royal Observatory astronomer, this show puts you in touch with the experts. Which constellations and planets, cosmic gas clouds, comets or shooting stars can we see? Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can all be seen with the unaided eye – can we see them tonight, and if so where? Jupiter's moons and Saturn's rings are both visible in binoculars – how do they look up close? These questions and many more are answered in the Sky Tonight Live show.
