Astronomy Costa del Sol

Astronomy on the Costa del Sol

About Us

Hello and welcome to our website.

I am Lee Osborne an amateur astronomer.

I am in contact with the local astronomers in the English and Spanish communities. We go out observing in dark sky areas at least once a month. We also get out of town and observe in the local hills every two weeks.

I run a small club and arrange different observing events along the coast. We are a friendly and approachable group, that will welcome new members of all abilities. Beginners welcome!

We do not have a formal society — it is a group of like minded people who enjoy getting outside at night and learning about astronomy.

IT IS FREE OF CHARGE TO COME ALONG.

So let’s get together and enjoy astronomy!

Background

A little background on me.

I have been interested in the night sky since I was 10 years old.

When Halley’s comet came over, I have been fortunate enough to meet Sir Patrick Moore a few times, along with a few of the other presenters of the BBC’s Sky at Night. Then I drifted away from astronomy in my teenage years until rekindling my interest in my early thirties.

I am a keen practical amateur observer of astronomy.

I belong to a few Astronomy clubs both here in Spain and in England, including Worthing Astronomers.

I have lived on the Costa del Sol since 2001.

In the night sky there is something for everyone of all ages.

If you just look up, have a pair of binoculars or even a small or large telescope you can enjoy the night sky.
