Kielder Observatory Midweek Open Evening

Monday 16th March 2020 from 20:00pm to 23:00pm

Kielder Observatory

Black Fell, Near Kielder Village, Northumberland, NE48


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.

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
