Soon, starlight will scatter through the dark,

0:00:020:00:05

0:01:210:01:23

Come and join us

0:01:340:01:35

underneath the stars.

0:01:350:01:37

-Hi, Chris - hi, stargazers!

-Hi, Maggie!

-CHILDREN: Hi, Maggie!

0:01:400:01:45

Welcome to the Stargazing Park.

0:01:450:01:47

What can we see up there?

0:01:470:01:49

-Stars!

-Lots of stars.

-I can see so many, I can't count them.

0:01:500:01:55

There's lots of things to see in the dark sky tonight,

0:01:560:02:00

but now I want to show you something much brighter.

0:02:000:02:03

Follow me. This way!

0:02:030:02:04

And look over there... What's the brightest thing you can see?

0:02:070:02:11

-The moon.

-The moon!

-The moon! Isn't it beautiful?

0:02:110:02:14

Are you looking at the moon, too?

0:02:140:02:17

Have a look up.

0:02:170:02:18

OWL HOOTS

0:02:180:02:20

The moon.

0:02:200:02:21

Round and full and shining bright.

0:02:210:02:25

Who else is spotting the moon tonight?

0:02:250:02:28

It's Rebecca!

0:02:380:02:40

Hi, stargazers!

0:02:400:02:42

-We're looking for craters on the moon.

-There's one!

0:02:420:02:45

-We went to the moon earlier, didn't we?

-ALL: Yes!

0:02:450:02:49

We went for a moon walk around the craters,

0:02:490:02:52

but we'll show you how we did it a bit later.

0:02:520:02:55

Well, I never!

0:02:580:03:00

How did Rebecca get to the moon?

0:03:000:03:02

It's such a long way away.

0:03:020:03:04

If you look through a telescope, you can see the craters really close up.

0:03:040:03:09

So the moon is covered in craters.

0:03:090:03:12

How do craters get on the moon?

0:03:130:03:17

That's a very good question, Alicia. How do craters appear on the moon?

0:03:170:03:21

I think I can show you. Follow me! This way.

0:03:210:03:24

So THIS is the moon.

0:03:280:03:31

But there's something missing - we don't have any moon dust.

0:03:310:03:35

-Ha-ha!

-I have the moon dust.

0:03:350:03:37

So if that's going to be the moon, here's the moon dust -

0:03:370:03:40

can you help me? Let me know when you've got enough.

0:03:400:03:44

Yes, keep pouring. We need lots of moon dust.

0:03:440:03:47

-How's that?

-Whoa! Let's try that.

0:03:470:03:49

Let's give it a shake. Lovely.

0:03:490:03:51

This...is a meteor.

0:03:510:03:54

-Does anyone know what a meteor is?

-I do.

0:03:560:03:59

It's a big piece of rock

0:03:590:04:02

which smashes into things.

0:04:020:04:04

That's right, Joseph.

0:04:040:04:06

It's a piece of rock hurtling through space at incredible speeds.

0:04:060:04:10

What happens if it lands on the moon's surface?

0:04:100:04:15

Meteor...smash! Who wants to have a go?

0:04:150:04:19

-Meteor...smash!

-In here...

0:04:190:04:23

I have an asteroid. Does anyone know what an asteroid is?

0:04:240:04:29

-An even bigger piece of rock.

-That's right, Joseph.

0:04:290:04:33

It's a BIG lump of rock, hurtling through space, going very fast.

0:04:330:04:37

As big as houses, or even bigger.

0:04:370:04:39

If this land on the moon, what's going to happen?

0:04:390:04:42

It'll make a bigger crater.

0:04:420:04:43

-Bigger than the meteor?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:04:430:04:45

Asteroid...smash!

0:04:450:04:48

Asteroid...smash!

0:04:490:04:54

-Bring it round...

-Asteroid...smash!

0:04:540:04:57

That was a bouncy asteroid!

0:04:570:05:00

Asteroid, smash!

0:05:000:05:03

So now, if we take some of the asteroids out,

0:05:030:05:06

let's see what we've got left behind.

0:05:060:05:09

Craters.

0:05:090:05:10

Yes, we got some really big craters.

0:05:100:05:13

So the moon got its craters

0:05:130:05:15

when meteors and asteroids crashed into it.

0:05:150:05:19

Thank you, because you've also given me an idea.

0:05:190:05:23

I'm going to turn this moon into a stargazing treat for Maggie.

0:05:270:05:32

But while I do, let's look up and see

0:05:320:05:34

if we can spot the moon through the window.

0:05:340:05:38

I've come up high above the rooftops to look at the moon.

0:05:500:05:54

You can look at it, too.

0:05:540:05:56

Look at the mountains and the craters and just imagine.

0:05:560:06:00

When I was a little boy, not much older than you,

0:06:120:06:15

people were walking on the moon.

0:06:150:06:18

We've actually landed on those craters

0:06:180:06:21

and looked up at those mountains.

0:06:210:06:23

-NEIL ARMSTRONG:

-I'm at the foot of the ladder.

0:06:230:06:26

The LM foot beds are only depressed in the surface

0:06:260:06:29

about one or two inches.

0:06:290:06:31

Maybe one day, YOU could be an astronaut,

0:06:310:06:33

so you could go to the moon, or perhaps even go to Mars.

0:06:330:06:37

Imagine how amazing it would be

0:06:410:06:44

to be moon-walking all the way up there!

0:06:440:06:48

Well, apparently, Rebecca and her stargazers went to the moon.

0:06:480:06:53

I wonder how they got on.

0:06:530:06:56

Meteor...smash! We're bringing the moon to Earth!

0:06:560:07:01

-Meteor...

-ALL: Smash!

0:07:010:07:04

-Smash!

-Smash!

-Smash!

0:07:040:07:07

Right, then.

0:07:070:07:09

-Do you think our craters are big enough?

-They're a bit small.

0:07:090:07:13

I think we're going to need some bigger meteors.

0:07:130:07:16

There you go.

0:07:160:07:17

Thank you.

0:07:170:07:18

-Meteors...

-ALL: Smash!

-Smash!

-Smash!

-Smash!

0:07:200:07:26

-So, do you think our craters are big enough now?

-ALL: No!

0:07:280:07:33

They're not, are they? We need some asteroids.

0:07:330:07:38

Asteroids are much bigger than meteors.

0:07:380:07:41

I know - why don't WE be the asteroids?

0:07:410:07:44

-ALL: Yeah!

-Asteroids...

0:07:440:07:47

-Go! Crash!

-Smash!

-Smash!

0:07:470:07:52

The moon is so big, I think we're going to need a few more asteroids.

0:07:520:07:56

Watch out, stargazers - here comes an asteroid storm!

0:07:560:08:01

CHILDREN CHEER AND SHOUT

0:08:010:08:03

Smash!

0:08:030:08:05

Asteroids... Stop!

0:08:160:08:18

-What have you made?

-Craters!

-Brilliant!

0:08:190:08:23

You brought the moon to Earth.

0:08:230:08:26

Right, stargazers, now we've done that, we're going to need this.

0:08:260:08:32

It's our very own lunar rover,

0:08:340:08:36

so we can explore and film the surface of the moon.

0:08:360:08:40

Here we go.

0:08:400:08:42

Astronauts send lunar rovers to the moon to collect

0:08:420:08:46

lots of information and to film the surface of the moon.

0:08:460:08:49

The surface of the moon is rocky, rough and uneven.

0:08:490:08:53

It has mountains, valleys,

0:08:530:08:54

craters and even footprints where astronauts have left their mark.

0:08:540:09:00

Let's go for a moonwalk

0:09:020:09:04

and leave our footprints on the moon - here we go!

0:09:040:09:07

Let's see YOUR moon-walking, Chris!

0:09:160:09:19

How's this, Rebecca?

0:09:200:09:23

Float... Float... Float!

0:09:230:09:26

There's only one thing better than moon-walking - that's moon-dancing!

0:09:260:09:30

OK, let's do a bit of moon-dancing, then - how's this?

0:09:300:09:35

Are you moon-dancing too? Let's all moon-dance together.

0:09:350:09:39

That's good moves!

0:09:390:09:40

# We get it almost every night

0:09:420:09:47

# When the moon is big and bright

0:09:470:09:50

# It's a supernatural delight

0:09:500:09:54

# Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

0:09:540:09:58

# Everybody's dancing in the moonlight

0:10:060:10:10

# Everybody's feeling warm and bright

0:10:100:10:14

# It's such a fine and natural sight

0:10:140:10:18

# Everybody's dancing in the moonlight... #

0:10:180:10:23

-NEIL ARMSTRONG:

-It's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

0:10:240:10:30

Oh, give yourself a big clap!

0:10:300:10:33

Great moon-dancing!

0:10:330:10:35

Look, I've just spotted a giant crater - the perfect place

0:10:370:10:41

to get cosy for tonight's Starlight Story.

0:10:410:10:46

Perfect - let's go.

0:10:460:10:48

# Starlight scattered through the dark

0:11:020:11:06

# Painting stories for us all

0:11:100:11:14

# Gather underneath the stars

0:11:170:11:21

# And hear their wonders told

0:11:230:11:28

# Looking up into the dark

0:11:300:11:33

# The night is yours and it is mine

0:11:330:11:37

# Looking up into the dark

0:11:370:11:40

# The dark upon us all

0:11:400:11:44

# Upon us all the stars will shine

0:11:440:11:48

# Upon us all the stars will shine. #

0:11:480:11:55

I wonder whose story the stars will tell tonight.

0:11:570:12:01

For hundreds of years, people have named collections of stars.

0:12:010:12:06

Which constellation can YOU see tonight?

0:12:060:12:09

ALL: Cancer, the crab!

0:12:090:12:12

Cancer the crab wished to ballet dance.

0:12:140:12:18

She tried to spin and leap,

0:12:180:12:20

but gravity kept on pulling her back

0:12:200:12:23

to Earth in a heavy heap,

0:12:230:12:25

sending meteors crashing and asteroids smashing,

0:12:250:12:31

making craters galore on the moon's dusty floor.

0:12:310:12:36

Now Cancer the crab's wish has come true!

0:12:420:12:46

Dancing round craters wide and deep,

0:12:460:12:50

she's ever so light and ever so floaty,

0:12:500:12:56

just watch her spin and leap!

0:12:560:12:58

Well, that's the story of just a few stars,

0:13:030:13:06

but there are billions more to see, so keep looking up.

0:13:060:13:10

Maggie, I nearly forgot... We've got a present for you.

0:13:100:13:15

There you are.

0:13:150:13:16

Thank you! What is it?

0:13:160:13:18

Meteor rock cakes - yummy, yummy!

0:13:180:13:22

We'll see you tomorrow for more stargazing. Bye!
