The 'original' Kielder Observatory experience - these stargazing events were how it all began at Kielder and our 'Public Observing' and 'Nightwatch' nights are now famous!

At Public Observing Nights, we open up our Observatory and hand it over to you. We are on hand to answer all of your questions, guide you around the night sky and supervise your use of our telescopes. If you want to come and learn about the night skies, study the constellations, get advice on how to use your own kit for observing and astrophotography, view distant galaxies, neubular and star clusters through our powerful telescopes...and much, much, more - this night is for you!

This is an evening for deep sky observing. We will look at galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, gaze at the glittering stars of the Milky Way. We’ll even try to look at this, Horsehead Nebula, a giant cloud of interstellar dust and gas. This object has only been seen by 10% of astronomers but we can see it from Kielder from November onwards!

Kielder Observatory is the only purpose-built public observatory in a truly dark sky the whole of Europe! Come and enjoy an incredible night of stargazing with us.


Use of the telescopes for viewing is only possible when we have clear skies.
Events go ahead in all weather conditions except where roads are impassible due to snow.
We do not issue tickets, full details are provided when you book your seats.
