Gary Fildes is not your average astronomer. After leaving school at 17 he went to work on a building site, where he stayed for a quarter of a century. Then one day, middle age approaching alarmingly, he acted on his life-long passion. The stars. Today Gary is the founder and lead astronomer of Kielder public observatory, a state-of-the-art visitor attraction that is amongst the best in the world. In this inspiring and accessible book, Gary shares his life's enthusiasm for the night sky.
