Sunday 19th October 2014, Keighley Astronomical Society at East Riddlesden Hall, Astrofestival 2014. organised by Bradford Astronomical Society and the National trust.

The events were kicked off at lunch time with Society chairman Paul Neaves giving a presentation on  Galileo’s Astronomical discoveries. The run of quest speakers ran until eight o’clock in the evening. The Skies had clouded over preventing observations. However before sunset there had been Solar observations. There were trade stands as well as stalls operated by Bradford, Keighley and Leeds Astronomical societies. Activities for the kids involved the ever popular rocket making and launching and face painting.
