  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 on the second Monday of the month at Unit 14, the Dales Centre, Reeth, DL11 6SP to discuss current astronomy news, exchange ideas and expertise and to observe the night sky.

Our next meeting will be  on Monday 11th December 2017 at Unit 14, the Dales Centre, Reeth, DL11 6SP.

Meet at 7:30pm.

If you would like to come along please phone: 01748 884926

or e-mail: information@reethastro.org.uk

We would like to thank Mike and Meg Evershed for hosting our meetings at Unit 14

During the winter we also hold observation and astro-photography sessions on the fourth Monday of each month, plus additional impromptu sessions when the opportunity arises. As these sessions are very dependent on the weather conditions please contact either MikeE or MikeW (see contact page) to see if they are going ahead and for the venue.


There will be no October meeting in Reeth as most of the members will be elsewhere.

The next observation session is planned for Monday 27th November if the weather is clear. For further details please contact MikeE or MikeW.
