On the night of 13th and 14th December 2018 we will witness a spectacular phenomenon of the Geminids meteor shower. Looking at a Shooting star (which we commonly call them) in a star-studded sky excites everyone. Now imagine about 60-80 of them visible in just one hour(during peak) or counting to 500 by entire night. The Geminids meteor (famous for its bright colorful fireballs) is one of the most reliable meteor showers visible from earth.

The Geminids meteor shower Observation at Alwar not only provides you an opportunity to witness this beautiful phenomenon but also enables you to experience the observation of galaxies and nebulas through an advanced telescope at our observatory. It is 3 days 2 Nights Program held at Alwar Bagh by Aamod, Sariska. Along with the beautiful view of Aravali ranges around Sariska National Tiger reserve, the skies are majestic and dark.

This Observation is a blend of practical session and lectures on astronomy. It develops conceptual clarity of basics of night sky observation with loads of knowledge sharing sessions with our astronomer. The number of participants has been limited which ensures the quality of the program ensuring everyone gets ample time for observation and interaction with the astronomy experts.
