Derby and District Astronomical Society


Northumberland - 15th-17th September 2017


In September 2017 a number of DDAS members travelled to the village of Bellingham on the edge of the Kielder Forest in Northumberland to try and do a spot of observing under dark skies. An account of the trip is provided here by Brian Dodson in the second of his 'Misadventures' articles. The following pictures from the trip were taken by Brian Dodson and Nick Cowling.
