Informal stargazing with the York Astronomical Society

Friday 1st October 2021 from 20:00pm to 22:00pm

Beetle Bank Farm
Moor Lane, Murton, YO19 5XD, Yorkshire and The Humber

The York Astronomical Society will hold an informal meeting this Friday. There will be some short presentations in the café followed by a Star Party in the Car Park.

There will be cameras attached to telescopes so you can see the images of the night sky. If you wish to look directly through an eyepiece, please wear a mask and use a hand sanitiser to reduce the risk of Covid transmission.

In the case of poor weather, members will be around to answer any questions you may have on telescopes.

The entry fee will be £2 for members and £5 for non-members, the meeting will start at 8 pm, and drinks will be available from the Café.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 01/10/2021

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
