Stargazing live.

Last week was the first week of this year back on the road.

At trip to Somerset was in order but not before we turned up at a school in Rugby.

A cloudless night is what greeted the stargazers at the Stargazing live event that was put on to tie in with the BBC 2 program.

Then the trip to Dulveton in Somerset to turn out the lights. Making national news the BBC 2 program got the whole town to turn off their lights at 8.30pm right in the middle of the program.

It was a big success in that all the lights went out however a rain cloud that came into the town in the morning hadn't moved by the evening and nothing was visible. Still it showed what was possible when a town pulls together.
