The event started with an introductory talk by Keerthi introducing celestial sphere to the audience and how to use sky charts. Children got to learn about the commonly observed objects in the sky and the difference between eclipse and moon-days. He also explained how a telescope works and the difference between refraction and reflective types. Team PRAYAS who organized the event had also arranged chocolates as prizes for those giving correct answers.
While children got busy viewing 3-D sky objects Keerthi and his team set up his telescope to view Venus before its descent. It was a sight to watch the crescent Venus through the telescope. A group of children were kept engaged with binoculars. Everyone enjoyed viewing Mars and the craters on the crescent moon. The Tamarind Rice Dinner provided by Mr. Anantharaman added to the joy of the occasion.
