SKY Amateur Astronomers Club
Barely any of us have come across that jaw-dropping, dark patch of sky, covered in thousands of tiny bright specks, that has left us transfixed. We, city dwellers, know nothing about what our home galaxy looks like, let alone the universe! Intrigued to know what it looks like? You've come to the right place!
The club's membership would be open to all-sky gazers, from a student to a senior citizen and enable them to witness the celestial extravaganza throughout the year.
Scientific Knowledge for Youth Amateur Astronomers Club (SKYAAC) is an association of astronomy enthusiasts, who share a collective objective of spreading knowledge about the cosmos in the society. Ever since its inception back in 2014, SKYAAC has been successfully conducting astronomy outreach events and overnight stargazing programs in and around the vicinities of Uttar Pradesh, India. Along with being equipped with skilled members and quality gadgets, our club has also been actively raising awareness about myths and misconceptions related to astronomy, especially in rural areas. SKYAAC functions with a vision of reaching out to the maximum number of people from all age groups and overcoming its geographical barriers.
The club aims at popularising astronomy and astrophysics among students and teachers so that correct information is disseminated among the people and to eradicate misconceptions.
The club apart from other activities would also conduct basic courses in astronomy for students, teachers, professionals, bankers and anybody who is interested in celestial developments. They would be known as amateur astronomers.
Apart from this, the club will also focus on "on the spot" activities, including amateur telescope making, model making, updating the members about latest astronomical findings and organising seminars and lectures by inviting eminent astronomers.
We, at the SKYAAC, would love to host you at one of our stargazing events. Come, take a tour through the night sky along with us and experience a totally different world that exists beyond us!
