This event is POSTPONED because of forecast cloud cover.
A chance to participate in some stargazing with Richard Austin, AONB Manager, and the South Downs Astronomical Society. If it’s a clear evening, we’ll be able to see the Moon around the first quarter and lunar craters. Mars and Saturn will be visible. Objects of interest include: M57 Ring Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy, M13 Globular Cluster, the Double Cluster in Perseus, and Albireo (double star). Organised by the Chichester Harbour Conservancy, this event is free, no booking is required, but it is weather dependent.

    Hi Stephen, if it looks like it’s going to be a clear evening, I will be happy to come along and would be happy lend a little expertise along with Richard’s contribution. If you like, I’m happy to bring along my Meade 10″ Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and 25×100 giant binoculars and set them up on various objects of interest throughout the evening. As a bit of background, I am a keen amateur astronomer (with an astrophysics degree) who’s been looking up at the skies since about the age of 7 (a little over 40 years ago now!)

      Hi Nick,

      This event is being organised by the Chichester Harbour Conservancy. I am sure your presence, equipment and help would be very welcome. I gather it is not necessary to book for the event – just turn up. Let’s hope for a clear night.
      Stephen
