York Astronomical Society

The York Astronomical Society was founded in 1972, around about the time that Apollo 16 went to the Moon. We were set up to demonstrate and teach astronomy and spaceflight to the people of York and the surrounding areas.

Events will usually have a talk related to the event followed by viewing of the night sky with society or member telescopes.  All observations are entirely weather dependent.
