Not all the heavenly bodies visiting Hyderabad this weekend are at the Blender's Pride Fashion Tour. Now showing at a patch of sky near you: Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus and Mercury.
This rare celestial phenomenon can be watched by the naked eye, but to view the sunspots caused by the planets, you will need a powerful telescope. Luckily, Gitanjali is willing to share. This high school has been very active in promoting interest for astronomy in the city, and you can watch the big gig overhead through their telescope. The sunspots can be viewed from 10:30 to 4pm on Saturday, and the planets themselves can be gazed from 6:45 to 9:30 pm the same day.
Another fairly uncommon event, the transit of Venus, is scheduled to happen on June 8th. This can only be viewed through solar filters that you can buy from the school premises. For further details please contact 94400-82627. And maybe you can sign up for their astronomy class too.
