The People's Star Party at Kielder - Autumn 2018

Friday 2nd November 2018 from 12:00pm to Sunday 4th November 2018 12:00pm

Kielder Campsite
Kielder Village, Kielder, Northumberland, NE48 1ER

Join experienced astronomers Richard Darn, Rob Ince and others for a weekend under the wonderful dark skies above Kielder Campsite and at the very heart of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park.

This event is open to everyone no matter their level of experience and is ideal for beginners. Telescopes will be provided along with expert guidance, you’re welcome to bring your own equipment too including cameras with tripods with which you’ll be able to take stunning photographs of the Milky Way. There will also be a bottle-rocket making and launch competition for children (both young and old!)

There’ll also be astronomically themed talks and solar observing through the day. If you’ve never experienced a truly dark sky site this is by far the best opportunity you can get!

Bookings for this event open in Spring 2018 via Kielder Campsite!
