If it’s time for a meteor shower, you won’t need a telescope, binoculars, or a high mountain to have a “Stargazing” party. You might need a warm cloths and best company. Just lying down in the mountains far away from city will put you in the perfect spot to enjoy a great show.

What is a Meteor Shower?

Whenever Earth encounters a stream of gritty debris left in space by a passing comet, the result is a Meteor shower.

Winter is the best season for Stargazing due to availability of clear skies .This helps us to see clusters, nebula, galaxies, planets and a lot more with Professional telescope. We are organizing this event in the outskirts of Pune to witness a pollution free environment and the serenity of nature. Our expert from IUCCA will share his part of the information on stargazing. You have the option of exploring more and more stars till late at night with the help of a telescope. (Minimum 20 people required for stargazing)
