Star gazing party in Pune

Dear sky lovers,

We had a wonderful event on 4th May 2019. There were many people who could see the wonders of the vast universe. We all observed many deep sky objects and planets.

There have been some issues with stay arrangements and some guests proactively talked to us on those issues. Such people help us to improve. They preferred to give feedback in person to us instead of posting feedback on any public forum. I thank to all of them. Our purpose is to offer best ever experience with nature at the same maintaining and doing the basic without any flaw is also very important.

We will update you about the next, exclusive star party event when we schedule it. Regular weekend camps also have star gazing sessions on every weekend.

It was a very cold night of December. Approximately a hundred people from Pune and some from Mumbai had gathered at our campsite. Our campsite is in Velhe Taluka of Pune District, at 70 kms, to southwest of the city. This area is a wonderful sight where there is very little light pollution.

100s of people have come here to see the most celebrated meteors shower. Kids, adults and even some senior citizens also had come for this event, which was organised by nisargshala. They gazed at the dark night sky all night long. Saw 100s of shooting stars, also saw many deep sky objects through telescope.

It was a wonderful event. At that time only I realized the need of making such activities more friendly and open to masses. So later when when Gaurav and me met, we discussed to create a platform where people who like star gazing, people who would develop interest for star gazing could come and explore the night sky.

So we have taken a decision to host star party, almost every month, near new moon. These star parties are going to on No Profit-No Loss basis. A nominal fees would be charged and anybody can take part in these parties.

There is even a chance to see ETA Aquarid  meteor shower, which is going to peak on 6th May night. The frequency in peak night would be 50 meteors per hour. However, we can also expect to see meteors on 4th May night.

Our next Star Party is scheduled on Saturday, May 4th, 2019.

Cost per person  = 400 Rs only.

Contact Hemant for registration. People who have registered only those will be allowed for star parties.
