Standing on the coast of warasgaon dam, we get a wide stretch of dark sky which offers a great opportunity for star gazing and other astronomy related activities. We will be setting up a 8″ telescope for observing interesting objects from the sky.

Entire Night we will have Star Gazing sessions and in meantime while sky rotates and show some new constellations we will have theoretical information sessions.
