This animated gif shows the Lovell Telescope (the 4th largest telescope in the world) at Jodrell Bank being moved during last night’s broadcast of BBC Stargazing Live to observe one of the lens candidates discovered by our volunteers on Space Warps! Stay tuned to the final episode tonight at 8pm GMT to find out what they saw, and to hear about the rest of the results from the project.
