The York Astronomical Society meeting & observing

The York Astronomical Society meeting & observing

Friday 3rd June 2022 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

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

Join the members of the York Astronomical Society for this one of their regular meetings that take place on the first Friday of each month (except for July and August) at Beetle Bank Farm.

Meetings involve a presentation by a guest speaker, and given that Beetle Bank Farm offers some respite from York’s light pollution, there may be an informal viewing session after the meeting in the group’s observatory.

Note that due to Covid, this meeting may take place online via Zoom, and we recommend contacting the Society if you plan to attend.

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.
