Soon, Starlight will scatter through the dark,

0:00:020:00:05

so let's all look up at Stargazing Park.

0:00:050:00:09

Hello, stargazers.

0:00:100:00:13

Now, last night we found out loads about comets hurtling through space.

0:00:130:00:19

I can't wait to find out what we're going to spot tonight.

0:00:190:00:23

All we have to do is look up.

0:00:230:00:25

# When the night falls, Maggie helps us see

0:00:340:00:37

# Wonders of the stars above us all

0:00:370:00:40

# Turn the lights low, grab a cosy rug

0:00:400:00:43

# Wrap up warm and snug, here we go

0:00:430:00:48

# We're going stargazing

0:00:480:00:52

# Gaze at stars shining bright

0:00:520:00:55

# We're going stargazing

0:00:550:00:58

# Spot a zooming satellite

0:00:580:01:02

# We're going stargazing

0:01:020:01:05

# Glimpse the moon and the planets above

0:01:050:01:08

# We're going stargazing

0:01:080:01:12

# So just look up, look up. #

0:01:120:01:17

-Come and join us underneath the stars.

-Hi, Chris. Hi, stargazers.

0:01:280:01:34

Hello, Maggie. Welcome to the Stargazing Park.

0:01:340:01:38

-What can we see up there?

-I can see a flashing dot.

0:01:380:01:43

Let's dim the lights, because we'll see a lot more stars.

0:01:440:01:48

Now, it takes a little while for your eyes to get used to it

0:01:480:01:52

-but are you seeing more stars yet?

-Yes. I see one million stars.

0:01:520:01:56

You see a million stars? I can see lots.

0:01:560:01:58

There's something flashing.

0:01:580:02:01

-I can see two things flashing over there.

-Me, too.

0:02:010:02:04

I think they're aeroplanes.

0:02:040:02:06

Now, I want you all to look for a tiny dot of light

0:02:060:02:09

moving across the sky. Can anyone see anything like that?

0:02:090:02:14

-There's one moving.

-Where?

-Over there.

-Oh, yes.

0:02:140:02:20

-Does anyone know what that dot is?

-I see a moving dot.

-A satellite.

0:02:200:02:24

-A satellite?

-I see a moving dot.

-Really? You never know.

0:02:240:02:27

I think you're right. I think it is a satellite. What's a satellite?

0:02:270:02:32

Er, it's something that orbits around Earth that makes it so

0:02:320:02:36

-you can go on phone.

-I've got an idea.

-What's your idea?

0:02:360:02:40

It goes around space and collects information.

0:02:400:02:43

Information - that's true.

0:02:430:02:45

They can tell us about the weather, they can help us

0:02:450:02:48

with our telephones and television signals, all sorts of things.

0:02:480:02:53

I wonder who else is looking for satellites in the night sky?

0:02:530:02:57

It's Pui!

0:03:060:03:08

-Hello, stargazers. We're looking for satellites too, aren't we?

-Yes.

0:03:080:03:12

Oh, but it's quite tricky looking for satellites because they're

0:03:120:03:16

so tiny up there.

0:03:160:03:17

Up close, satellites are this big.

0:03:170:03:21

So if a this-big satellite looks tiny up there,

0:03:210:03:27

imagine how teeny-tiny Miss Mouse would look up there.

0:03:270:03:31

I know. Come back in a bit and you never know,

0:03:310:03:34

you might even see Miss Mouse in space.

0:03:340:03:37

Imagine, Miss Mouse in space! Oh, I hope she makes it there.

0:03:390:03:44

Can you spot any more satellites? Have a look. Have a look.

0:03:440:03:47

-Yeah, yeah.

-Where? Where?

-There. Where is it going?

0:03:470:03:51

For that question, you can help me answer it. Come on, guys.

0:03:510:03:56

Now we all have our stargazing part satellites,

0:03:570:04:01

but what we want to do is try and get them up into space.

0:04:010:04:04

Oh, we can do that. Three, two, one, blast off.

0:04:040:04:09

Wahay! Up they go.

0:04:090:04:10

-Oh, dear.

-And down they come.

-What goes up must come down, I'm afraid.

0:04:100:04:15

So now, let's see if you can do better.

0:04:150:04:18

-But Chris, I need to use your head.

-Oh, really?

0:04:180:04:21

-Can you put this Earth hat on, please.

-Absolutely.

0:04:210:04:25

-I'm the Earth.

-Now, what we just did is we took our satellite

0:04:280:04:32

and we threw it up in the air and it came back down.

0:04:320:04:35

What do you think would happen if we threw our satellites this way?

0:04:350:04:40

It would go wheeee!

0:04:400:04:42

That's right. They might fall off the edge of the Earth.

0:04:420:04:45

-So shall we give that a try?

-Ready, satellites?

0:04:450:04:49

Three, two, one, blastoff!

0:04:490:04:51

-Whaaay!

-Oh!

0:04:510:04:54

-So what happened?

-It came down.

-Yes.

0:04:540:04:58

We have to think about this a bit more.

0:04:580:05:00

Let's say that we got our satellites but now,

0:05:000:05:03

we're going to throw them

0:05:030:05:05

just the right amount so that they go around here and start falling.

0:05:050:05:10

What they are going to do is keep on falling towards the Earth.

0:05:100:05:14

It's still falling towards the Earth

0:05:140:05:17

but it's following the curve of the Earth.

0:05:170:05:20

So where's the satellite going? It's going round...

0:05:200:05:23

And round and round.

0:05:230:05:27

-That's right. Round the Earth.

-Maggie, you're orbiting me!

-Yes.

0:05:270:05:32

Our satellite is in orbit.

0:05:320:05:36

Look, I've got an Earth hat just like Chris's. Let's put this on your head.

0:05:360:05:42

Off you go into orbit, Miss Mouse. Whee!

0:05:420:05:47

What's the view like, Miss Mouse?

0:05:470:05:49

Lovely, Jake, but quite honestly,

0:05:490:05:52

I've always wanted to be a real astronaut.

0:05:520:05:55

-Ooh! I think we can help you with that. Can't we, stargazers?

-Yes.

0:05:550:06:00

It looks like astronaut Miss Mouse is ready.

0:06:300:06:33

Miss Mouse, this is your moment.

0:06:330:06:36

You are about to go on an adventure that's out of this world.

0:06:360:06:41

Three, two, one, blastoff! Up, up and away!

0:06:410:06:46

Come on, back to mission control!

0:06:540:06:56

Here at mission control,

0:07:010:07:03

we can find out what Miss Mouse's space flight was really like.

0:07:030:07:07

I can see all of the clouds.

0:07:100:07:12

She's in space!

0:07:180:07:19

Mission control, I've reached the edge of space.

0:07:210:07:25

The Earth looks magnificent from up here.

0:07:280:07:33

Look at the edge of the Earth.

0:07:330:07:35

-Can you see the curvy shape?

-Yes.

0:07:350:07:39

Miss Mouse, this is mission control.

0:07:390:07:42

-Prepare to come back to Earth.

-On my way.

0:07:420:07:46

-Miss Mouse, you're back.

-Thank you, mission control.

0:07:500:07:55

Now, what this astronaut needs is a nice cup of tea.

0:07:550:07:59

Miss Mouse in space! It's incredible, it really is!

0:08:010:08:04

Now stargazers, I've got a few things to show you.

0:08:040:08:07

-Can you help me, Charlie? What's this?

-A toothbrush.

-That's right.

0:08:070:08:14

-Next, we've got... What's this? A spanner.

-A spanner. OK.

0:08:140:08:18

What else have we got, Charlie?

0:08:180:08:20

-A tool box.

-A tool box. That's right. We've got one more.

0:08:200:08:24

-Does anyone know?

-A space glove.

-A space glove.

0:08:240:08:29

You can tell cos it's floating. This is an astronaut's glove.

0:08:290:08:33

Now we've got four things here.

0:08:330:08:35

Can anyone tell me what they've got in common?

0:08:350:08:38

All of these things have been lost in space

0:08:380:08:41

and they're known as space junk.

0:08:410:08:43

You can see pictures to give you an idea of how much stuff is

0:08:430:08:47

out there. It's like a snowstorm around the Earth.

0:08:470:08:51

It goes round and round and round and round.

0:08:510:08:56

You're orbiting me.

0:08:560:08:58

Thank you, Charlie.

0:08:580:08:59

I'm going to see if I can spot some space junk through the window.

0:08:590:09:04

Do you really think I'm going to see an astronaut's glove through

0:09:040:09:08

the window? No. I need a telescope. Right.

0:09:080:09:11

Good luck trying to find an astronaut's glove.

0:09:250:09:28

Keep an eye out for an astronaut with a very cold hand,

0:09:280:09:32

with a glove missing in space.

0:09:320:09:34

Of course, the astronauts you would find aboard

0:09:340:09:37

the International Space Station doing their work, doing their experiments.

0:09:370:09:42

Eating their dinner.

0:09:420:09:45

In about 90 minutes, they can go around the Earth

0:09:450:09:49

one entire time and they see night-time and daytime.

0:09:490:09:55

They see the whole world.

0:09:550:09:57

What an incredible view from the space station.

0:10:010:10:05

-Now, how is Earth looking from up here, stargazer satellites?

-Great.

0:10:050:10:10

You're happy? Oh, that's good.

0:10:100:10:12

Well, I think we should sing a song about spotting satellites.

0:10:120:10:17

That's what we're being.

0:10:170:10:19

# Spot a light, a satellite

0:10:190:10:22

# Satellite, satellite

0:10:220:10:26

# Spot a light, a satellite

0:10:260:10:29

# Orbiting the Earth... #

0:10:290:10:31

Are you ready to go?

0:10:310:10:32

# Round and round and round it goes

0:10:320:10:36

# Round it goes, round it goes

0:10:360:10:39

# Round and round and round it goes

0:10:390:10:43

# Orbiting the Earth. #

0:10:430:10:45

-Now, what else goes around the Earth?

-A glove.

0:10:450:10:49

Yes, the astronaut's glove. Shall we sing about that this time?

0:10:490:10:53

# Spot a glove, an astronaut's glove

0:10:530:10:56

# Astronaut's glove, astronaut's glove

0:10:560:11:00

# Spot a glove, an astronaut's glove

0:11:000:11:03

# Orbiting the Earth... #

0:11:030:11:05

Let's go !

0:11:050:11:07

# Round and round and round it goes

0:11:070:11:10

# Round it goes, round it goes

0:11:100:11:13

# Round and round and round it goes

0:11:130:11:17

# Orbiting the Earth. #

0:11:170:11:19

-What goes up must come...

-Down.

0:11:210:11:26

Oh, that's it. Get nice and cosy for another Starlight story.

0:11:280:11:34

Look up. The stars have stories to tell.

0:11:340:11:38

# Starlight scattered through the dark

0:11:410:11:47

# Painting stories for us all

0:11:490:11:53

# Gather underneath the stars

0:11:560:12:01

# And hear their wonders told

0:12:020:12:07

# Looking up into the dark

0:12:090:12:12

# The night is yours and it is mine

0:12:120:12:16

# Looking out into the dark

0:12:160:12:19

# The dark upon us all

0:12:190:12:22

# Upon us all the stars will shine

0:12:220:12:27

# Upon us all the stars will shine. #

0:12:270:12:34

-Everybody look up.

-Gemini, the twins.

0:12:340:12:38

Gemini, the twins, wish to travel the world, to travel round in just

0:12:400:12:46

one day and be home in time for tea.

0:12:460:12:49

They hopped upon their shiny scooters and scooted really fast

0:12:490:12:55

across the park and through the zoo but stopped when they got to the

0:12:550:13:00

sea, so they climbed aboard a pirate ship that bobbed upon the waves.

0:13:000:13:06

Up and down and up it went but sailing the world would take days.

0:13:060:13:13

Through the telescope, they spied a rocket, ready to zoom.

0:13:130:13:19

So they took a lift with a satellite and blasted towards the moon.

0:13:190:13:24

Then round and round and round they went,

0:13:240:13:28

looking down on the land and sea.

0:13:280:13:30

Round and round and round they sped and were home in time for tea.

0:13:300:13:35

We'll see you for more stargazing tomorrow. Until then, bye-bye.
