Last week BBC One’s Stargazing Live astronomer Mark Thompson was the guest of honour at a Stargazing Live Party hosted by St Peter’s School in York.  Mark’s lecture on A Down to Earth Guide to the Cosmos – also the title of his latest book – was sold out as he wowed the audience with a journey through space, tackling the key concepts of astronomy and unlocking the secrets of the sky.  As well as Mark’s lecture, the school also invited astronomers from the local society to bring their telescopes along. Teachers and students from York University were on hand to answer questions about some truly mind boggling experiments on display, while cups of delicious hot chocolate were served up to fight off the January chills!
