Adur Astronomical Society

SOCIETY UPDATE – 4th May 2022

We met yesterday evening for our lecture meeting at Southwick. Attendance was quite low, but assumed to be partly due to the Bank Holiday weekend and our move to a Tuesday for this one meeting for the same reason. The June meeting will go ahead as planned, with the AGM and an external speaker. The society observing group meetings at Clayton Hall are continuing for the present, with practical demonstrations and discussions, although the longer daylight evenings of summer limit observing time.

We are an astronomical society of about 40 members covering the Adur Valley area of West Sussex.

Our membership ranges from complete beginners to experienced astronomers and everything we do is based on the premise that astronomy can and should be enjoyed by everyone. We have two monthly meetings.

One is held at the Southwick Community Centre. This is usually lecture based and frequently with external speakers, covering a wide selection of astronomical subjects to suit all interests.

The other meeting covers practical astronomy and is held at the Clayton Recreation Ground in Hassocks. So, if you are thinking of buying a telescope, already have one and want to learn more, want to have a look through a telescope or binoculars or take images of the night sky then come along and meet the members. Help and advice is always on hand.

Both beginners and the experienced individuals are welcome to our Society and whether you are interested in visual astronomy, astrophotography, or just learning more about astronomy in general, we are sure that you will find something to interest you.
