Raygill Astronomy Club

About the Club

Raygill is now officially a DARK SKY SITE. We are a friendly bunch of enthusiasts and welcome all newcomers earthly and extraterrestrial!

Raygill has no light pollution. It is a very safe place for star spotting and offers a chance to put the theoretical stuff you may learn from books or in the classroom to the test and is perfect for getting the scopes out and taking a look up to the skies. Great fun and very educational. We also have lots of geological and archaeological information here.

We have the use of the Lodge if we have a speaker/lecture or if the sky is cloudy so there is always something to do. Also there is a café where you can get a hot drink and toilet facilities too.

We have seen from Raygill the Aurora Borealis, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Moon, stars and satellites even the International Space Station!

We are in an excellent position for members to visit from Keighley, Skipton and Colne and our site has disabled access.

Come and take a tour of the skies with us.

Just £1.00 per person
(drinks available to buy from the café)
