Knavesmire Star Parties

Our star parties and other events are cancelled until further notice because of the Coronavirus. We will keep you updated on future events on our website.

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 [see Locations page] with easy car parking, and on dates when the moon will be visible (weather permitting!)

If you have a telescope and are not sure how to use it, bring that along and we will try to help you.

For stargazing events at other locations see our events page.

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