The Societies Public Observing meetings at The Redoubt are open to the general public and members, and are advertised in Eastbourne Council literature. We bring various society telescopes and observing is undertaken on the Gun Terrace. We also generally provide a presentation (or presentations), undertaken in Casemate 20, of astronomical interest. We align some of these meetings with the BBC Star Gazing Live Events. Please wrap up warmly as it can get cold. For information the Gun Terrace Battlements provide ample shade from the Street Lights on Royal Parade.
This event is held in the early evening to make it family friendly – however note that the start times change for events due to the changing time of the Sun setting. The event is free of charge. The Redoubt Coffee Shop is generally open for warming drinks – at a charge.
Location: The Redoubt Napoleonic Fortress, Royal Parade, Eastbourne, East Sussex BN22 7AQ
