The sky above Hang My Hat HQ near Hadrian's Wall is simply stunning tonight. We are so excited to be entering Northern Lights season once again! A sky bursting with twinkling lights and a breathtaking swathe of green across the northern horizon. What a time to be in Northumberland! Here's a video from Kielder Observatory from last year to show you what we mean. Incredible isn't it?
Many of our Hang My Hat cottages are snuggled below some of the darkest skies in Europe and Kielder Observatory is within travelling distance of most of them. If you are interested in exploring the Northern Lights and the Milky Way more closely, check out the Kielder Observatory website and book yourself onto one of their events, when expert astronomers will talk you right round the galaxy with your feet on Northumbrian soil.
