11-01-2013 : STARGAZING ON YOUR CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY

Following the huge success of the BBC's 2012 Stargazing live the programme is back with more exciting events throughout the UK to encourage everyone to make the most of the night sky.

Bringing together astronomical societies, museums and discovery centres, country parks and local authorities, these exciting events include planetarium shows, rocket making, star parties, alien activities.

If you have been inspired to start Stargazing then a Canal Boat Holiday is a perfect choice for you.

Moor up on your Canal Boating Holiday miles away from any street or artificial lighting to enjoy the night sky in all its glory.

The quieter pace of life on your Canal Boating Holiday also means you can enjoy the stars with little interruption.

Look up to the heavens and on a clear night you will be able to see a slight haze which is in fact billions of stars that make up the Milky Way.

The North Star and the brightest in the sky has been used by sailors for navigation for thousands of years.

The moon will appear as a different shape every night as it goes through its different phases or cycles from full to crescent.

There are eight phases of the moon and it can be either waxing or waning and it takes about 29 and a half days to complete a cycle.
