The Observatory

On the 25th April 2008 I opened the Kielder Observatory. Joined by a dedicated team of volunteers – Lynn, Kev, Austin Paul and Malcolm. Together we set about communicating the science of astronomy.

The observatory quickly grew in popularity – and soon we were sold out regularly, we developed a way in which we could convey the wonders of the universe to all who visited with care and passion

Our core values shone in the boundless enthusiasm of these dedicated professionals. They were used to delivering quality experiences for all who come to visit us all year round, leading our guests from the Northern Lights to the depths of the Milky Way galaxy and out into the observable universe.

I Don’t attend the observatory sadly nowadays – but one day Im sure I will be back – delivering astronomy the way it should be.
