Event details

Discover the beauty of the Dark Skies of Kielder. We’ll start with an introductory indoor session using an amazing software programme that allows you to view all the wonders of the night sky in real time. Afterwards, weather permitting, we’ll go out and using the naked eye, binoculars and a telescope, view some of the wonders of the universe. Even if the sky isn't clear we'll set you up with all the knowledge you need to make sense of the night sky and find your way around the next time you are out and it is clear.

The activity leader, Bruce Ferguson of Wild North Discovery, has been a keen star gazer since the early 1970s when his interest in the night sky was inspired by the gift from his dad of his first telescope, a 3-inch refractor.
