Knavesmire star parties

Join our members with their telescopes for one of our public observing sessions and enjoy the beauties of the night sky. A great way to introduce your family to astronomy, our star parties take place on the Knavesmire in central York with easy car parking, and on dates when the moon will be visible (weather permitting!)

if you have a telescope and aren’t sure how to use it, bring that along and we will try to help you.

Next dates:

  • 7pm, Thursday 6 June from 7pm
  • 7pm, Thursday 11 July from 7pm
  • Star parties will continue in the autumn.

For stargazing events at other locations see our events page.

These public observing sessions only take place during the darker months.
