Public Observing

The Societies Public Observing meetings are organised in conjunction with Eastbourne Borough Council, and are open to the general public and members, and are advertised in EBC literature.

We bring various society telescopes, and specialised cameras and have knowledgeable society members on hand to answer questions, and help you to discover the night sky. An Introduction to Astronomy slide presentation will be shown in the meeting room in the centre. The event is ability friendly, and is held in the early evening to make it family friendly.

Note that the start times change from month to month to accommodate the changing time of the Sun setting.

Please wrap up warmly as it can get cold.

The event is free of charge.

LOCATION: The Beachy Head Story Centre, Beachy Head Rd, Eastbourne BN20 7YA – previously known as the Beachy Head Countryside Centre.

Plenty of car parking.

NOTE: If there is snow, ice or high winds the event will be cancelled for Health and Safety reasons.
