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

Society Observing

This is the event for members to observe from a darker sky area or to get help with telescopes. We generally have a short presentation on what should be observable and may talk about telescopic or 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 @ The Redoubt Fortress
Nov 2 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

LOCATION – The Redoubt Fortress, Royal Parade, Eastbourne BN22 7AQ – Enter via the Rampart from Royal Parade.

Free Public Observing on Eastbourne Seafront.

Observing will be on the gun platform with members of the Eastbourne Astronomical Society through various society telescopes, and specialised cameras, who will be able to point out and show you some of the night sky delights. Child and ability friendly.

An astronomical presentation and talk will be undertaken in Casemate 20. Note that there are steep steps down to the parade ground and Casemate 20.

Members are welcomed to come along and bring their own telescopes, and anyone can bring along a telescope if help is required to make best use of it.

The event is of course reliant on the weather – if it is too cloudy, raining (or snowing) observing will not take place – although we will still present a talk and presentation in Casemate 20.

Wrap up warm if it is a cold evening. Red torches welcomed – white torches and lights not welcomed.
