Public Observing

February 1, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

LOCATION – NOTE – LOCATION TO BE DECIDED – The Redoubt will not be available to us from November due to building works – we are in discussion with Eastbourne Council to see if we can again use the Western Lawns and The Lansdowne Hotel.

Free Public Observing on Eastbourne Seafront.

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

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.
