Welcome to West Yorkshire Astronomical Society

a Registered Charity (Charity Number 508313).


The Observatory is closed in August 

for maintenance work. We open again

on Tuesday 5th September.


Due to prevailing weather conditions the trip to Malham Tarn

has unfortunately had to be postponed.

Don't you just love British summer weather.







The Small Print --- Admission Open Night - Members £3. Non Members £4. Children under 16 free.

If you attend the observatory for a second night in the week then there are no admission fees 

Concessions for Students, Senior citizens and unemployed parents. £3

Please note. The increase has had to be implemented due to constantly rising costs.
