About Planetarium

The planetarium regularly holds sky-shows to dispel the heavenly myths, propagate the basic concepts of astronomy and also train the amateurs to appreciate the grandeur of the night sky. The topics include evolution of earth, mysteries of cosmos, exploration of Mars and other planets. Interactive sessions are held following the sky-shows with school groups.

The planetarium coordinates the activities of the local amateur astronomers by helping them to make their own telescopes, organising astro-photography and sky watch sessions from outside the glare of city lights, guiding and helping them in various scientific projects and organising evening open sky-watch sessions for the masses.
