Adur Astronomical Society

SOCIETY UPDATE – 17th October 2021

Our first two Monthly Meetings taking place at the Southwick Community Centre on the 6th September and the 4th October went as planned. Attendance was good and it was great to meet old friends and some new members as well. The next meeting is on Monday 1st November and the agenda will be emailed to all members as soon as it is available. We are continuing to use members talks until Xmas, but will then be adding external speakers to our monthly meetings for talks during the 2022 calendar.

The Observing Group (TOG) have now met twice at their new venue of the Hall, at Clayton Recreation Ground and on both occasions there has been a good turnout. Full details about TOG and their new venue can be found under the website link to Practical Astronomy. The next meeting is on Wednesday 17th November.

We are an astronomical society of about 50 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.
