Explore the wonders of the night sky above the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard, including star clusters, nebulae and galaxies under the guidance of the York Astronomical Society (YAS) experts.
If the skies are not visible because of bad weather, join us in the Visitor Centre for an entertaining illustrated talk, given by a member of YAS, about what is up there above the clouds! Telescopes provided but please bring your own if you wish.
Refreshments available. Wrap up warm and bring a torch along with you.
