To celebrate the 7 November 2014 release of Christopher Nolan’s star-studded blockbuster Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine, the Slooh Community Space Observatory, in association with BBC Sky at Night Magazine, will host an out of this world online event that is free to all BBC Sky at Night Magazine readers.

From 7pm on Sunday 2 November, the Slooh Community Space Observatory's network of research grade telescopes will take you on a journey into space via your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. The instruments are located at high altitude under some of the darkest skies on the planet – on Mount Teide in Tenerife.

During the two-hour event there will be live online feeds from Slooh's sensitive CCD cameras based at the Institute of Astrophysics in the Canary Islands. The astronomers, science writers and surprise NASA guests hosting the event will open a window onto deep space from your own home, and will be answering your questions on Twitter over the evening.

To get involved, visit www.interstellarspaceevent.com and use the access code tsanspace. Readers can also claim an exclusive free film poster and Solar System chart during the live event.

Alternatively, you can watch the event right here on Sunday.
