Littlehampton

Astronomy for Beginners

WHAT DOES THE GROUP DO:
Ever wanted to know more about what’s visible in the night sky, and how the views change from season to season?
This group aims to provide a helpful and enjoyable framework for discovering what's up there and how you can see it!
We meet one afternoon per month, complemented by occasional night-sky observing evenings, which are arranged according to the weather. We explore the main sights and celestial events, month by month – from the moon and planets, to the major constellations, as well as some warmer daytime solar astronomy. We also look at how you can capture photos of the night sky

LEVEL OF EXPERTISE:
No prior knowledge of astronomy is required, and no expensive equipment needed – naked-eye stargazing is a fairly economical pastime! However, the group also provides guidance on the choice and use of binoculars, and telescopes, should you eventually want to go down that route

MEETINGS:
Monthly, on the third Thursday of each month, from 2:30pm to 4.30pm

VENUE:
The Studio, Windmill Cinema, Windmill Rd, Littlehampton' BN17 5LH

COST:
£10 per head, for 10 monthly sessions, depending on overall numbers
