Adur Astronomical Society

SOCIETY UPDATE – 1st August 2022

Dates are now in the Astro Calendar for the AAS monthly lecture meetings held at the Southwick Community Centre and the AAS Observing Group meetings held at the Clayton Recreation ground and hall. Location details for both venues can be found on this site. Program details for the lecture evenings will be published as soon as speakers are confirmed. 

We are an astronomical society of around 40 – 50 members covering the Adur Valley area of West Sussex, including Brighton to Worthing on the coast and many of the towns and villages inland.

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.
