Visits: Stargazing in Austerfield

Units can arrange to visit the stargazing domes at Austerfield Study Centre to view the stars and receive a presentation from the Doncaster Astronomical Society. Find out more here.

“Doncaster Astronomical Society in co-operation with Austerfield Study Centre, who generously provide the ground and rooms for the Outreach Programme, work closely with local groups within the community to bring the science of Astronomy to schools and youth associations. Our outreach programme consists of a slide-show presentation on the solar system, our own milky way galaxy and beyond. After the presentation, should the sky be clear, your group will be able to view the Moon, planets, stars and/or galaxies (depending on the time of year) with either of our research grade telescopes situated at the Austerfield Field Study Centre.”
