Postponed : The World of Nakshatras !


Dearest Astronomy Lover,

Amateur Astronomers Group is happy to announce our next Stargazing session !
The World of Nakshatras !

The Ancient Hindu Sages divided the zodiac into 27 Nakshatras or lunar constellations. The 27 signs of the Vedic Lunar Zodiac are probably the oldest astrological system of mankind.
This system is very rich in mythology and these stories are the carriers of true knowledge since thousands of years.

In this session, our experts will walk you through many of these Nakshatras and explain the logic and stories behind them.

Along with that,
Breathtaking views of the Craters on Moon, Rings of Saturn and many deep sky objects through our high-end telescopes, Astonishing Astronomical Videos on projector, Astro-Quiz and lot many discussions on the topics such as Black Holes, Gravity, Big Bang and Time Travel !
