Midweek events at Kielder Observatory offer a good opportunity to visit the facility when the weather is clear as these events no longer get booked up well in advance. This makes it possible to check the weather forecast a few days beforehand. If you want to experience the dark skies make sure you plan your visit around a new moon. Register on our website for clear sky event notifications we will email you when the forecast looks promising!
