Milky Way Photography in Kielder Forest

Sunday 28th August 2022 from 21:30pm to 23:30pm

Kielder Castle
Kielder Village, Kielder, Northumberland, NE48 1ER

Enjoy the beautiful scenery and some of the darkest skies in Europe at this photography workshop with expert tutor Gary Lintern from Photography Experiences.

This workshop is timed perfectly for the best visibility of the Milky Way, with the brightest regions just about appearing above the horizon.

You’ll meet in the Water & Forest Park for shoots near Kielder Castle before heading off along the forest drive and towards the water.

Everyone is welcome to participate, including beginners, people who’ve dabbled with night photography to more experienced photographers.

For more details and to book this event, please visit the Photography Experiences website.

This event takes place as part of the Festival of Astrophotograpy 2022, a series of workshops across northern England and online events during the end of August and the first week of September.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
