Chris Lintott and Lucy Green are joined by Jon Culshaw at the Kielder observatory in Northumberland to share the results of Patrick Moore's winter marathon, which saw him challenge viewers to seek out a list of celestial objects visible in the night sky. The programme also follows them as they set up their telescopes in the hope of catching a glimpse of asteroid 2012 DA14, which last month passed closer to Earth than any such object of its size.
