Herstmonceux Astronomical Festival, 6-8 September

A weekend at Herstmonceux Astronomy Observatory near Eastbourne.

Camping overnight at the observatory or organise your own B&B accommodation.

I am trying to book a camping pitch. The festival organisers are trying to arrange more pitches for this popular event which is currently fully booked.

There are talks and events throughout the weekend.

    I have booked a pitch for up to 4 people for the weekend. I will be taking my large 4 man tent in my car together with my 102mm refractor telescope and astronomical binoculars.

    Herstmonceaux is where the Greenwich Observatory telescopes were moved to to avoid the light and air pollution in London. You won't see much of the night sky anywhere near London.

    Attendees of this festival may be able to observe the night sky through some of the very large telescopes based at the Herstmonceaux Observatory as well as telescopes belonging to members of many Astronomical Societies. There are also a number of astronomy related talks I am attending.

    If anyone wants to join me I may be able to pick them up from Eastbourne or another railway station near Herstmonceaux. There is room in my tent if you have a sleeping bag etc.
