Special Event for Science Week – Solar Observing

Free Public Observing at the Redoubt Napoleonic Fortress on Eastbourne Seafront.

Observing will be on the Gun Platform with members of the Eastbourne Astronomical Society through various society telescopes. Astronomical presentations will also be available in a downstairs Casement (especially in the case of rain!) and coffees and teas will be available from the Redoubt or Pavilion Cafe.

Anyone can bring along a telescope if help is required to make best use of it.

EAS Members are welcomed to come along and bring their own telescopes as long as suitably filtered.

Enter via the drawbridge from the main road.

Note that direct solar observing is dangerous and must only be undertaken with the appropriate filters. Safe Solar observing can also be undertaken by the projection method.
