COORG SKY SHOW

The Sky show at Field Marshal Cariappa College, Madikeri, on 29th and 30th December 2009 was mixed bag. It was an event managed by TEAM ABAA, with lecture by Chandrashekar, on Guide to night sky as a part of International inter-disciplinary conference of Astronomy.




Weather god did not permit us to do the show on day one. In fact it was raining...!!!

Day 2 was better with sky clearing up for about 2 hours after Sunset and we were able to show 300+ public the Moon & Jupiter.

People and the organizers were really pleased at the end of the show and have promised to have more sky shows in co ordination with ABAA.

2 telescopes were used, 8 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain and 4 inch refractor.

All in all a satisfactory outreach to the public of Madikeri.

TEAM ABAA: prakash subbanna, chandrashekar, anil and Mani.
