Royal Parade, Eastbourne, BN22 7AQ
Join members of Eastbourne Astronomical Society for this one of their free public observing sessions at The Redoubt Fortress… This event is ideal for everyone and goes ahead no matter the weather with an astronomical presentation in the Casement and observing (weather permitting) from the gun platform! Bring along your own telescope if you have one and take a red torch (not a white one) so not to affect your night vision… Wrap up warm and enter the fortress via the drawbridge!
