Astronomy on the Costa del Sol
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!
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.
