  Reeth Informal

 Astronomy Group

covering the Northern Yorkshire Dales

Reeth Informal Astronomy Group are a small and friendly group which started following a local Skill-share meeting in April 2013.

Our members  are mostly based in the Northern Yorkshire Dales, in particular Arkengarthdale, Swaledale & Wensleydale, but we welcome people from further afield if they wish to join us.

The group covers every level from absolute beginners with no equipment whatsoever to those with a modest amount of experience of using small to medium sized telescopes. Our common aim is to learn together, and everyone is welcome.

We have a regular meeting usually on the second Thursday of the month to discuss current astronomy news, exchange ideas and expertise and to observe the night sky when it’s clear.

Members also hold impromptu observing and astrophotography sessions at other times when the opportunity arises.


We are now back from our Summer recess so our next meeting will be held on Thursday 11th August at 7:30 for 8:00 pm at Fremington Sunday School, DL11 6AR.  Parking is on the grass verge opposite, just be careful not to block gateways etc.

There will be a donations bucket for contributions towards the cost of hiring the hall.

For those who cannot join us face to face, we will have a Zoom link - just let MikeE (mikee@reethastro.org.uk) know if you would like to join in that way
