Stargazing for beginners

Join local astronomer Liam Reid at the wonderfully dark village location of Stonehaugh for this public stargazing event. The event includes a talk or presentation on a variety of astronomical topics and then observing through telescopes should weather permit. These events are a fantastic and inexpensive way of experiencing the amazing dark skies above Kielder Forest.

Have you always fancied trying a spot of stargazing but just couldn’t get to grips with the jargon.
Uncertain what type of telescope to buy; refractor, reflector, manual or
Or do you own a telescope and aren’t sure where to point it.
We’ll translate the jargon and point you in the right direction.

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.
