BBC Stargazing Live – Leicester

BBC Stargazing Live took place on 20th March at the Leicester Race Course to coincide with the solar eclipse — one of the biggest space events with over 8000 people. ESA Astronaut Paolo Nespoli attended who spent a total of 174 days on The International Space Station and Paul Franklin, who was the Visual Effects Supervisor from the recent blockbuster provigil Interstellar at the event. Leicester AstRoSoc members formed a large part of this event with their outreach activities.
