Pictures have teamed up with the Slooh Community Space Observatory to host an out of this world online event that is free to watch through

At 7pm (UK time) on Sunday 2 November, you're invited to join Slooh for an amazing two-hour journey into space using your computer, tablet or smartphone. You'll be able to view incredible live online feeds from the powerful Slooh space camera based at the Institute of Astrophysics in the Canary Islands.

You can also use Twitter (and the hashtag #interstellarspaceevent ) to ask the broadcasters questions and even determine where the space cameras explore.
