THE TERN TRAVELLERS PRESENTS
A NIGHT WITH THE STARS
This weekend come fall in love with the shining bodies which is at the canopy and lightens the entire night.
The Club brings you an opportunity of closely witnessing these bodies and understanding the facts behind them.
Sky watching is an outdoor activity done in a dark night sky in presence of a crescent moon. It is an activity of watching the stars, planets, solar system, moon and other celestial bodies with the help of a Telescope under professional guidance. We will learn the concept and enjoy observing minute details of all bodies in the sky and photographing them. We often travel to have adventure, photography and so many other things. But, winter being the best time for sky watching, its now time to observe the most important cycle of life.
