Venus Watch at ABAA

After I announced about Venus being in its brightest phase many people showed interest in looking at Venus through telescope following Sunday. On Sunday we were happy to see public and members coming in large numbers to watch Venus in crescent phase. After sunset we put the telescope out and focused on to Venus, members of ABAA were present there in showing and explaining all about Venus. Using the 6 inch telescope of ABAA people saw amazing sight of the crescent phase, and immediate reaction of most people was “is it Moon?”, that lead to discussions and members helped them in getting idea of orbits and phases of inner planets.

ABAA is open on all Sundays from 5:30pm and always ready to show the celestial wonders to people and members showing interest. People can come and see moon and planets, learn about them and also learn about telescopes and how to use them. Observing through a telescope has steep learning curve, its best to learn about them before buying or going out for observing and ABAA can really help in that section. ABAA can help in choosing the best telescope for you or help you in building your own telescope, you can come to ABAA on any Sunday evening and discuss your needs.

Here are photos of Sunday sessions of Venus watch
