Club members observing one night ouside the village hall at Woodmansey
East Riding Astronomers (ERA) is a friendly and informal astronomy club.

Our main purpose is to observe the night sky and to help others get into this absorbing hobby. In 2018 we moved from central Beverley to our current site at Woodmansey Village Hall where we enjoy much darker skies as well as a larger car park.

Our regular monthly face to face meetings at Woodmansey Village Hall restarted in September 2021 and we have met each month since then.

As a club we have also kept in touch with weekly Zoom meetings each Monday at 7.00 until 9.00. New and prospective members are also encouraged to join us on Zoom at 8pm each Monday when we are not meeting at the Hall.

If you would like to find out more about the club or join us online at a Monday Zoom meeting then please contact the Secretary.

Under normal circumstances we occasionally use other observing sites in the county, away from street lights, see Where We observe
