Family astronomy at Kielder Observatory: what's it all about?

Well, the skies, the Universe and what's in it!

Tonight you sit back, relax and listen to your kids amaze you! Watch their faces as they get more and more interested in the topic as we whizz them through the Universe at breakneck speed, with stunning visuals and the famed Kielder Observatory delivery team. They will be absorbed!

Following the interactive talks you will all enjoy a tour of the observatory and the telescopes. Although at this time of the year the skies do not get dark until later there will still be opportunity to observe through the telescopes should the skies be clear -- if possible we'll be observing the sun before sunset through our special solar telescope, the moon with its vast mountain ranges and craters and the planet Jupiter which is still visible through our scopes even at twilight!

A great introduction to the Universe – and all before dinner... !

PARENTS PLEASE NOTE that our family astronomy events include short periods of up to 20 minutes where guests will be sat in the class room.  Whilst we aim to ensure the content of our events are accessible to all ages you may find this is unsuitable to 'lively' children under the age of 4.

Use of the telescopes for viewing is only possible when we have clear skies.
