Akashmitra conducted a public sky show on Saturday 4th July, 2015 at the footsteps of the Chatuhshrungi Temple on Senapati Bapat Road, Pune. We showed people planets Jupiter, Venus and Saturn through telescopes from 7pm to 9:30pm. It was a great show put up by our volunteers and we reached approximately 500 people in that span of time. The idea is to reach out to people who don’t have access to telescopes and binoculars and let them enjoy the beauty of the night sky just as they saw it in school textbooks or on the television.

We also believe in spreading awareness about Astronomy through such programs and thus make it a point to spread astronomy in the city of Pune. Below are the photographs of the event.
