Kielder Observatory Astronomical Society was formed in 2007 by a group of enthusiastic amateur astronomers based around the Kielder Observatory in Kielder Forest. Our club’s emphasis is to promote interest in the science of astronomy in the general public. The Society adopted its constitution in February 2008 and was registered as a Charity with the Charities Commission on 29th May 2009. The society runs a programme of events throughout the year.
