Adur Astronomical Society

The Society AGM took place via a Zoom meeting on Wednesday 9th September. The minutes of the meeting will be available on the Members Pages shortly.

We are currently attempting to understand the implications of the latest Covid 19 restrictions, but believe that our monthly lecture meetings at the Southwick Community Centre may resume on Monday 5th October. 

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

Needless to say there will be changes to the format and the manner in which the meetings are conducted, including restrictions on the numbers allowed to attend, in order to ensure compliance with the Covid 19 safety procedures of the venue and our Society.

Members will be kept 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.
