Astronomical Night at Suryashibir


Suryashibir is beautiful location in the backwaters of Warasgaon Dam. Standing on the coast of warasgaon dam, we get a wide stretch of dark sky which offers a great opportunity for star gazing and other astronomy related activities. We will be setting up a 10" telescope for observing interesting Celestial Objects from the night sky.


Entire Night we will have Star Gazing sessions and in meantime while sky rotates and show some new constellations we will have theoretical information sessions. These sessions will help you to understand the real depth of sky. Things like What is Star? How is it born and how it dies? What mean by Constellation? What is nebula? What is cluster? What is galaxy? will be explained.
