Adur Astronomical Society

SOCIETY UPDATE – 23rd June 2022

The last Observing Group meeting took place yesterday evening at Clayton. This now means that our programme of meetings, both the monthly Lecture evenings at the Southwick Community Centre and the Observing Group meetings at Clayton Hall will recommence after the summer break in September. Dates for the new programme of events will be available in the next few weeks.

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.
