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 has just completed undergoing renovation.
The mission of the society is to advance public education and interest in the science of astronomy and its related sciences, in the Yorkshire region, in particular by the education, encouragement and pursuit of astronomical knowledge and observational astronomy, and by such means as the trustees may determine.
