Join the team from Kielder Observatory at Kielder Castle for a spectacular planetarium show aimed at the younger astronomer that is fascinated by all things space. These events are designed to inspire and educate youngsters about our universe and – if the skies allow it – stargazing and observing the sky through our range of telescopes.

Whatever the weather, our team will present an inspirational show inside our large planetarium to take youngsters and parents on a trip through the cosmos in a way that will enthuse younger audiences and be equally interesting for accompanying adults.

Please note this event takes place at Kielder Castle.

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.
