Outreach

Here’s a list of recent and forthcoming outreach events where you’ll find members of SSAS supporting providers of astronomy activities. Some of these events are free to attend, where you just turn up; and others are for organisations where you have to book in advance. If you’re planning on coming to one of these stargazing events, take a look at our Astronomy Dos and Don’ts before you come.


Note to ALL Members: ‘BE PREPARED’ for spontaneous Solar Viewings!

 

We will also be doing spontaneous solar viewing at Raystede at short notice on Sundays.

Not only will we be there but Jane Green, who is a professional speaker, author, broadcaster and an elected Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, is coming to give a talk on the night!

Both SSAS and East Sussex Astronomical Societies will be running this evening and we will be armed with telescopes and have reported that the moon, Jupiter and Venus should be visible on the night.  We can also show you what’s up in space through Stellarium, whatever the weather!

All money raised from the evening will go towards helping the animals in Raystede’s care and by coming on our evening you are helping us achieve our mission of giving animals a better life! The event will include a soup dinner and there will also be a cash only bar and music throughout the evening.
