Adur Astronomical Society

SOCIETY UPDATE – 12th September 2021

Well, the first of our re-convened Monthly Meetings took place at the Southwick Community Centre on the 6th September as planned. Attendance was good and it was great to meet up again. The next meeting is on Monday 4th October and the agenda should be available on the Astro Calendar in the next 10 days.

The Observing Group (TOG) also held their first meeting at their new venue of the Hall at Clayton Recreation Ground on Wednesday 8th September. There was a good turnout and although the weather was not conducive to astronomy, there was much to demonstrate and discuss. Full details about TOG and their new venue can be found under the website link to Practical Astronomy. The next meeting is on Wednesday 6th October.

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.
