York Astronomical Society

Online talks – we held our first online meeting on Friday 24 April using the Zoom software. As a trial run, members only were invited and over 20 joined. Invitees were asked to suggest something astronomical to to during the lockdown – see our blog post to download the slides. Graham Moore gave a short talk on astrophotography using a DSLR camera. He has posted the talk on Facebook.

COVID-19 update. All our activities are now suspended: the talks at Priory Street, our Knavemire star parties and events at Beetle Bank Farm, until further notice. All of the events listed on our web page are cancelled until the end of June. The feasibility of events after that date will be reviewed. Follow our Facebook Chat Group page during the lock-down.
