Come to Sutton Bank to once again join enthusiastic members of The York Astronomical Society for a night of stargazing. There will be a talk in the cafe followed by sky observing using a range of telescopes of all shapes and sizes.
Wrap up warm as it can get very cold on a night and bring a torch. Feel free to bring along a pair of binoculars and a blanket to lie on, as well as a flask of something warm!
This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.
