The society is delighted to announce its involvement in the inaugural Star Gazing weekend, hosted by Vicky and Colin of the Fox and Hounds, Ainthorpe, near Danby. 

This event is now running on Saturday October 19th only, from the Fox and Hound Inn and will commence from around 5pm. The evening will start with an indoor presentation and weather permitting will then continue outdoors with demonstrations and observations, hopefully of the wonderful autumn night sky above the North York Moors.

Having checked out the location and sites to be utilised, the viewing aspects and lack of light pollution should make for fantastic viewing, whether through a telescope, binoculars or just the naked eye.  Vicky and Colin from the Fox and Hounds have asked the society to host the star party events as well as giving indoor presentations for the people staying in the inn for the weekend. 

Evening Dinner at a discounted rate can be provided for those members assisting with the event, ie. transport, telescopes and other equipment, but this will be dependent on numbers as places are limited, so please contact Mark at the earliest opportunity if you are intending to come along.  For further information please click this link.
