Public Days

Once in every month from March to October, our observatory organizes a day of observation for public. The exact day of the event is decided according to positions of celestial objects of interest and announced through our web site. On the day of the event, observations of the selected objects like the Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, nebulae, galaxies, star clusters, iridium satellites, International Space Station, begin with the sun set and carry on until the first lights of the next day. In addition to the observations, presentations are given by professional astronomers and interesting topics of astronomy are discussed.
