Kielder Spring 2014

Recommended Posts

It's early and it's nearly here.  The spring edition of the star camp takes place from 26 Feb - 3 March at Kielder Campsite in the heart of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park.  Sky meter readings of 21.7 have been recorded on a regular basis for this location.

The main day is completely FREE and features trade stands and four talks.

Presentations this year will include doing science with your astro pictures, meteorites and Conquistadors and searching for Jupiter's faint moons, plus a mystery talk.  All takes place at Kielder Castle from 11am to 4.30pm.  

Drop me a line if you want further information or campsite booking info.

Cheers

Richard

Yes C14 coming.  Jetstream has been a real problem for me this year - very little decent seeing unfortunately.  But I'll keep trying.

Astrodevelopments and Grovers at spring - a few more for Autumn as always.

Hope you feel better soon.

Cheers

Yes and we saw the Northern Lights too from Kielder Forest Star Camp - even through clouds!

Hi everyone.

Thanks again for everyone involved in running these events - I love my time at

Kielder and it's really down to the quiet but efficient organisation and the cracking group of star campers....

I've written up a star camp report and show my images here:
