Society Observing @ Arlington Village Hall
Jan 25 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Society Observing

This is the event for members to observe from a darker sky area. We generally have a short presentation on what should be observable and may talk about astronomical news items – then if it is clear we observe from outside the Hall. Teas and coffees are available at a small price. Wrap up because it can get cold.

Public Observing – Temporary Location: The Western Lawns @ The Western Lawns
Feb 9 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

TEMPORARY LOCATION – The Western Lawns – Across from the Lansdowne Hotel.

NOTE: The Redoubt is shut for building works and is unavailable until Spring 2019.

Free Public Observing on Eastbourne Seafront.

Observing will be on the Lawns with members of the Eastbourne Astronomical Society through various society telescopes, who will be able to point out and show you some of the night sky delights. A 20% discount is available for Stargazers at the Lansdowne Hotel for hot drinks, drinks and even dinner!

Anyone can bring along a telescope if help is required to make best use of it.

Members are welcomed to come along and bring their own telescopes.

The event is of course reliant on the weather – if it is too cloudy, raining (or snowing) it will not take place.
