On Saturday 14 January, BBC Big Screens will be live-linking to the Faulkes Telescope in Hawaii for a taste of the stars in the daytime. Selected sites will host Stargazing lunchtime events with astronomical activities including an interactive game created for Stargazing LIVE 2012. You can interact with the BBC Big Screen and experts on film will answer 20 burning questions about the Universe. There will also be a demonstration of tablet computer star apps that you can use to learn more about the skies.

Big Screen events will be occurring in Norwich (Chapelfield Plain), Derry (Waterloo Place), Plymouth (Armada Way), Bradford (Centenary Square), Edinburgh (Festival Square), Woolwich (General Gordon Square), Birmingham (Victoria Square), Swansea (Castle Square).

Event in Edinburgh - hope the weather is fine!
