ASTRONOMY CLUB EVENING OBSERVATORY SESSION

On January 9, 2019 the Space Astronomy Club conducted an Evening Observatory Session between 5.00 P.M and 7.45 P.M in school premises for its members of Rohini and Krithika. 85 students participated in this session. This session had both theoretical and practical classes where the students were taught about various telescopes and its detailed uses. In the practical session, students were taught to use their own telescopes to observe celestial bodies. They observed the Moon, Mars and a few stars. Students were excited to observe the celestial bodies. They exhibited a lot of enthusiasm in this hands on activity. Parents were also fortunate to view the craters of the moon. It was a very unique learning experience for both students and their parents.
