Adur Astronomical Society

The Society AGM took place via a Zoom meeting on Wednesday 9th September (notes available in the Members pages)

The Observation Group (TOG) monthly meetings resumed at the Westdene Green Community Barn on Wednesday 16th September, but with numbers limited to 6 persons.

Regarding our monthly lecture meetings at the Southwick Community Centre, the latest ruling is that these too are subject to ‘the rule of six’ and so, since this makes running our society meetings a rather pointless exercise, we won’t be starting again until further notice. We regret this as much as we know you will, but we will start again just as soon as we are allowed. In the meantime we are looking at the possibility of running a series of lectures for members via Zoom. So watch this space as they say.

Needless to say there will no doubt be further changes to the format and the manner in which any meetings can be conducted, to ensure compliance with the Covid 19 safety procedures of the venue and our Society. We will do our best to keep the membership informed via email, but in the event of a query please use the Contact Us page.

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 Westdene Green Community Barn, Brighton. 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.
