About Us

The York Astronomical Society was founded in 1972 and became a registered charity (no. 1174488) in 2017. Its observatory is at Beetle Bank Farm and is currently undergoing renovation. York Astronomical Society is generously supported by Everything Voice.

We aim to demonstrate, educate and promote the subjects of astronomy and spaceflight in the York area. We hold regular public meetings with guest speakers and the Society hosts regular star parties.
