Hi there, you're watching Newsround live on CBBC with me Ayshah,
here's what's going on this Tuesday morning.
Big news about Brexit...
The bus that drives itself...
And the miraculous birth of this baby bat.
First up, there's a really important decision expected later about how
the UK will leave a club of countries called
the European Union.
Here's our political guru Chris Mason to explain.
This is all about a decision being made here by the UK's Supreme Court.
It is the most important court in the land.
11 judges have to decide who should be in charge
of telling the European Union that we are leaving.
Officially, the process is called "triggering Article 50".
Once that has happened, the UK has got two years
to get it all arranged.
Some people think the decision should be made by those
who make our laws, MPs, in Parliament.
And the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh assembly and people
in Northern Ireland want their views to be heard too.
But the Prime Minister, Theresa May, thinks the Government shouldn't have
to ask permission to say goodbye.
We'll find out later this morning what they decide.
But whatever they say, it's the next big step
in what is a really important time for the future of this country.
And don't forget, there's loads more info about what leaving
the European Union could mean for the UK and how
it's going to happen.

and phrases everyone seems to be using!
Football now and an 18-year-old referee is calling for a national
strike on the first weekend of March because he claims refs aren't
getting enough support. Ryan Hampsen doesn't believe that
referees in the amateur leagues are respected enough.
He's been attacked and players often shout at him and use bad language.
Although not everyone agrees with the planned strike,
Ryan thinks it's the only way to tackle the problem and says
so far he's had the support of more than 800 referees.
We loved her at the London and Rio Olympic Games but boxing
superstar Nicola Adams has said she won't be going to the next
Olympics and will now turn professional.
That means she'll be earning money by having big fights on TV
rather than getting funding from Team GB as an Olympic athlete.
She said the time was right.
I wanted to leave the amateur game a World Champion
as well as a double Olympic champion.
So, I decided to stay to fulfil my goals.
I wanted to be a double Olympic champion, World Champion and leave
ranked number one as well.
To tennis and Britain women's number one Johanna Konta says she's done
everything she can to be ready for her first ever meeting
with 22-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams
at the Australian Open quarter finals on Wednesday.
Konta has won 18 sets in a row and she says says
she's pretty excited to play Serena.
She is one of the, I mean if not THE best player for us
to ever have in the game, so I think to play against someone
like that, who you also grew up watching, I think is another great
opportunity for me to take a really mega load of experience from.
Meet Alice, she's 15 and has trouble seeing
but now her life has been transformed by Billy,
her very own guide dog.
She's one of the youngest people in the country
to be given one. Here's her story.
It's the new term and there's a new face at this high
school in Nottinghamshire - a very furry one.
Billy the Labrador is just one of around 50 expert pups helping
to guide blind children or those who have problems with
therir sight in England.
their sight in England.
I think it's good because I don't have to constantly have
people watching me. He gives me a bit more freedom.
In the past, guide dogs weren't paired with children
as they were thought to be too much of a responsibility
for a young person. But now, the rules have changed.
The amount of work you have to do with him and the
responsibility is overwhelming.
But if you put the work in, you get the results out of it.
These two have been together since October
and are getting on just fine.
Having Billy in school just allows her to gain that
independence, build resilience, confidence, and go
through her school life as every other child would.
The school had to create a quiet area for Billy to rest
in and somewhere for him to walk.
And he's been a big hit with the rest of the pupils too.
He's a bit of a poser.
They did say the novelty will wear off but everybody still loves him.
You might have heard of a smart car -
but this is a pretty smart bus, it drives itself!
It's just been launched in France.
It will go between two train stations to start.
It can carry ten people at a time and uses sensors to figure
out its surroundings.
Zoo keepers at San Diego Safari Park are celebrating the miraculous
arrival of this baby fruit bat...
His mother had problems giving birth and staff needed to perform
an emergency operation to save him.
The surgery had never been done on a fruit bat before.
Thankfully, 12-day-old Rodrigues is now doing really well,
he's being hand-fed by staff at the zoo.
That's all from me, Newsround's back with all the latest on Brexit,
live from London, at 4:20pm. Don't miss it.
