Stargazing LIVE in the Pub

Re-scheduled to Saturday 5th April 2014
Details to follow.
The Star Inn, Pevensey, East Sussex
Saturday 8 February 2014
1400 - Midnight
Organised by the East Sussex Astronomical Society
The Star has a great southerly view with an array of telescopes for viewing the Sun and the night sky; all are welcome to come and view its wonders.
Observing will start at 2.00pm with the Sun, then early evening, the Moon, and, as it approaches dark, the ESAS will have laser guided tours of the constellations along with telescope viewing through a variety of provided scopes.
Talks will also take place throughout the afternoon and evening, of which I shall be one of the guest speakers.  If wet, still come along as we shall be presenting, whatever the weather!
Here's hoping for clear skies!

Horns Lodge Inn, South Street, South Chailey, BN8 4BD
Saturday 22 February 2014
1800 - Midnight
Organised by Richie Jarvis of South Common Observatory
South Chailey turns off the lights to view the night sky in one of the darkest corners of the country, with a full supporting cast of astronomers and telescopes to help out.
Following the success of last year's event, feel free to join us for an evening of viewing and presentations, including mine.  It was really great fun last year and I am sure it shall be again.
Again, let's hope for clear skies!

Hopefully see you there.
