Brighton Astro

Next meet

Time: Arrive from 7pm for a 7:30pm start

Location: 68 Middle Street, Brighton, BN1 1AL

Ciaran Fairhurst, a Sussex University PhD student, talking about his research: “Detecting the most distant galaxies”


A gathering for anyone in the Brighton and Hove area who is interested in space - the moon, the sun, planets, stars, galaxies, looking through telescopes, learning more about the night sky and the universe.

Every month we will have one or two talks aimed at beginners with an interest in learning more about astronomy, but assuming no prior knowledge.

Also, we will take our telescopes out to observe in and around Brighton on clear evenings - on the seafront, Hove and Preston Park, Devil's Dyke and beyond.

You are very welcome to join us!

We have an email group so that we can organise future gatherings, and also so that we can arrange stargazing sessions on clear nights. Let us know if you would like to be added to the list.
