Stargazing at the Redoubt Fortress:

Run by Eastbourne Astronomical Society from 5 – 7pm, they will provide a family friendly tour of the night sky suitable for all. Members of the society will point out the constellations, features on the Moon and some of the Planets using both their own and society's telescopes. If you have your own telescope or even binoculars you are welcome to bring them along.

Other bright objects in the night sky will also be observed, usually planets, but the visibility of these varies from month to month as they orbit the Sun.

New this time - they will point out lunar landing sites this time round. Viewers will also have a chance of seeing Apollo 11, 16 and 17 sites on each of the nights.

The Eastbourne Astronomical Society will be giving out handy pocket sized guides on what you can see in the night sky.
