Australia: Episode 2

Mar 29, 2017 on BBC TWO at 8:00 PM


Stargazing Live is back for a second night of spectacular night-sky views from Australia. Join Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain live as they complete another long night under the stars down under, and watch the glorious stars of the southern sky... (more) gradually twinkle away to reveal the coming dawn. Tonight, unprecedented views of Saturn are the big prize. Aussie astronomer Greg Quicke reveals more ancient tales from the indigenous astronomers of Australia, explaining why the moon looks upside down in Australia and showing us the remarkable link between the moon and the Great Barrier Reef. We hear more about life on top of this remote mountain amongst the kangaroos and spiders of the Aussie outback - none of which stops the astronomers here making some amazing discoveries, including the oldest known star in the universe.
