Charmed by the sight of Venus perched like a diamond on the disc of the moon? Even if you happened not to have looked at the sky that particular night, and had to be make do with the grainy newspaper reproduction the next morning, you might have felt some curiosity at that almost magical sight. And what if you could watch the next brilliant episode (June 8) with not just earthly awe, but with some insider info on the celestial phenomenon?
Hyderabad's Association of Amateur Astronomers have just the thing for you. Leave those dusty books aside, get off Google, and climb up to your terrace. That's where it's all happening. Well, not your terrace but a terrace. Meet other star-struck neighbours at the two-week astronomy workshop, that is being held especially for those who want to know more about the transit of Venus.
You don't need to have a background in science, and the workshop will take you through historical astronomy, teach you how to identify stars and constellations, and tell you a little something about the sun's journey. Plus, there will be a field trip planned for night observation. Sound like fun?
Please contact the organisers of the workshop at 98482-40273 for further details.
