    Kielder

    Hi all,iam up at kielder village at the moments 2nights, the forecast was for cloudy skies and rain this weekend I was gobsmacked when I come out the anglers arms,clear very dark skies awesome. Got my binoculars started having look around, found m31 looked for m51 couldn’t see it. There was so many stars it was quite hard to make out the constellations, still a nice problem to have. Can’t recommend this place enough, if anyone is thinking of coming here it’s a special dark sky site. Regards Barry
