Live on the BBC

SALT is taking part in the Stargazing program on the BBC  and segments on Viewing the Southern Sky, Galaxies, and  Exoplanets will be filmed, live, here at SAAO.    They have changed the control room into a tv studio and transformed a number of the SALT staff into stars (pun intended).    The segments will air, on BBC2 at 20:00 on 16-18 Jan and also freely available in the UK on the BBC website.

  2. Well done guys! Some really memorable performances, especially from you Steve! At least if the pro astronomy thing doesn't work out, you could always put yourself forward as a presenter of one these types of shows ;-)
