Black Fell, Near Kielder Village, Northumberland, NE48 1EJ
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 — as such it’s possible to check the weather forecast a few days beforehand when deciding to book tickets. If you want to experience the dark skies plan your visit during a “new Moon” period (see our dark sky calendar to check). If you register on our website and choose to receive clear sky event notifications for this location we will automatically email you when these events take place and the weather forecast looks promising! Note that events take place 7 nights a week with start times varying throughout the year.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 14/01/2020
