Event Location

Family astronomy at Kielder Observatory: what is it all about? Well, the skies, the Universe and everything that is 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 an introduction on how to use the powerful telescopes. These instructions are given with special focus to our younger visitors, the specific aim being that no matter what age or experience anyone can become an Astronomer. 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.
