Dark Skies

During the Autumn and Winter months, Northumberland is a great place to see a truly dark sky. Due to minimal light pollution, a large part of North Northumberland has been awarded ‘International Dark Sky Park Status’.

There are events  held throughout the Autumn and Winter months to access the beautiful night skies.

The amazing Aurora Borealis ‘The Northern Lights’ have been seen off our coastline.

This picture was taken by local astronomer, Ian Glendinning, who offers and provides equipment for Star Gazing Evenings.
