EASTBOURNE Astronomical Society, in association with BBC Learning, will host Night Sky Taster.

The Stargazing live event will take place at Arlington Village Hall on January 14 (8pm-10pm).

Total beginners will get a chance to explore the night sky, guided by expert astronomers, at a dark site that provides one of the best views of the night sky in the local area.

If it is a clear night, visitors will be able to observe the Moon, Jupiter and other objects with society telescopes.

The event, which is suitable for ages eight and upwards, is free of charge and no booking is required.

Visitors may bring their own binoculars or telescopes.
