Kielder Observatory - Weekend Late Night Event
Most Fridays and Saturdays in the late slot (approx. midnight-3am, please check website for times) we run our premium weekend events. These are similar to our main evening events but have a reduced number of guests to ensure you enjoy the maximum time at the various telescopes and have an intimate event with our most experienced astronomers.
Join us for a special evening of talks and all your astronomy questions will be answered, then, if the skies are clear, we’ll be taking a good look at the beautiful sights of the cosmos, if not we have the technology to bring it alive. Of these two events, Late Night Dark Skies is timed near to the new moon when the sky is at its darkest and this is the only event where there is a 30% discount on a future booking if you are unable to observe as well as a free Kielder mug!
Tickets must be booked in advance and we often sell out early, so please check our website for availability and to book: https://kielderobservatory.org/our-events
