Around 80 people braved the cold to stare through telescopes as part of the BBC’s stargazing events. A roaring fire with pumpkin soup and hot drinks kept everyone warm and when the clouds broke we could spy the moon and its craters, Jupiter and its five moons. Thanks to Dr Darren Baskill from the University of Sussex and Jo lewis from Science and Technology Facilities Council for bringing their telescopes and making it happen.
