Author: Gary Fildes

A former bricklayer who decided to follow his passion for the stars after working on sites for 25 years, Gary Fildes is the founder and lead astronomer of Kielder observatory. Part-memoir, part-seasonal guide to the night sky, An Astronomer's Tale finds Gary explaining why he loves the stars so much and the reasons why he decided to set up an observatory in the forests that are located in what is officially the darkest place in England. Sitting beneath a sky that is so clear that thousands of stars can be seen every night, you can even see Venus cast a shadow and the Northern Lights on many occasions from his observatory. Describing his love in an accessible style, he shares his enthusiasm and the chapters alternate between accounts of his life and a month-by-month guide to stargazing for a general reader. Gary states how if he can reconnect with the wonders of nature, you surely can, too!
