What we're about

Do you love the night sky? Would you like to know more about what you see? At Brighton Astro we are captivated by stars, bewitched by the moon and fascinated by space.

Brighton Astro is a group of cosmic enthusiasts who meet regularly to discuss the universe, exchange knowledge and to gaze at the stars. We are not scientists or scholars, we are ordinary people curious about the wonders of space.

Brighton Astro is FREE and open to everybody, from beginners to experts. Why not come along next month and learn about space?
