Night Skies

Keeping you in the Dark - The Night Skies of Northumberland are something to behold

Northumberland's night skies are renowned as offering you one of the very best opportunities to see the stars and planets so often blotted out elsewhere due to light pollution.

Northumberland National Park has officially been designated as a Dark Sky Park. The kudos of becoming a Dark Sky Park will help ensure the area is kept free from light pollution and will stimulate more opportunities for people to enjoy the night sky.

You will be able to view some fantastic night skies right across Northumberland in particular along the North Northumberland Coast, Tynedale and the most spectacular opportunities will be found at Keilder Observatory.
