The Night Sky through the eyes of Astronomy
Humans have always been enthralled by the sight of the night sky. Our ancestors’ unrelenting search for knowledge about the sky and the objects in it, has led to an astronomical revolution in our understanding of the universe. We humans, even today, continue to expand this search, at an ever increasing rate. The planet and star gazing nightout program is for kids to understand what is up there after they go to sleep. The program will open up the minds of kids, enabling them to see the nature through the eyes of astronomy. The Program will change the way kids think and make them appreciate the wonders of the night sky and put them on a course to search for even more.
