Hi all,

Mrs H and I are considering relocating to Whitby and I was wondering if there were any Astro types in the area, any meet ups etc?

I've found the Whitby and district astro society.....any good, or is it like many, and a bit of a closed shop!

Hi Rob.  The skies are fantastic in and around the North York Moors National Park.  Whitby AS hold regular meetings and feel free to check out SARAS as we hold monthly meetings plus observing sessions and we run the annual Dalby Starfest each year.

I was born and bred in Whitby and my life long mate formed and runs the astro society there - pm me for details or check out their web site: http://www.whitby-astronomers.com/

I'm not a member of WDAS but I meet up with a few of them every year at the Leeds AstroMeet and they're certainly not a closed shop.

Hi Rob, you'd better top up on those thermals for living up here! I'm not a member of anything yet but N Yorks is pretty good for skies in rural areas. I'm not sure how bad Middlesborough affects Whitby?

It's the sea frets that often present the biggest headache:  :embarassed:
