I went to Kielder Observatory yesterday with my Daddy. It was an early birthday present from Granny and Grandpa.
It was a long drive to Kielder and on the way we listened to music from my MP3 player and I played Minecraft on the iPad.
When we arrived it was foggy but not yet dark. As we waited in the car we played Olo on the iPad.
At just before 5pm we went into the Observatory and sat in the classroom. Gary the leader of the Observatory taught us things about space that they have measured. I answered lots of questions.
After that we went to look at both of the telescopes. One was controlled by a computer and the other by hand. With the computer controlled one you could tap ‘Enter’ and it would go wherever you want. I got to have a turn because I answered a question.
They said it was too foggy to look through the telescope.
Mummy bought a torch for me which has four different colours. They are green, red, blue, and white. We had to use the red one while we were at the Observatory.
On the way home we went to McDonald’s!
