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 and third 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.
Please note that this has already taken place on 01/12/2023
