Astronomy for all
Who We Are
We are a local astronomy group with members from Worthing and the local area. We were formed 11 years ago in 2008 by a husband and wife team who built a friendly community minded group of enthusiastic amateur astronomers. We believe astronomy should be a hands-on, practical experience so we do our best to meet for observing nights as often as we can. Our members enjoy both observing and photographing the night sky and regularly share our images on our Facebook group. We like to encourage new people into the hobby and support them in getting to grips with the basics.
For members, Worthing Astronomers hold a monthly meeting where as well as having a social aspect, it is all about sharing knowledge and gaining experience. There are no requirements to have your own equipment to join, we just ask that you take part and attend whenever you can. There is a £3 cover charge at the door, although the first time is free. Alternatively we offer a discount rate for a yearly subscription. This helps to cover our basic club running costs for venues and insurances etc. Tea, coffee and squash are included.
We run several public outreach events each year to engage with the local community where all are welcome to come and share the night skies through our telescopes.
