Lumbini College Night Sky Observation Camp
April 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - April 6, 2019 @ 6:00 am EDT
To celebrate the Moon Landing Anniversary, Nalanda College Astronomical Society (NCAS) and Nalanda College Alumni Astronomical Society (NCAAS) are conducting a night sky observation camp for students from grade 6 to 11 at Lumbini College, Colombo, Sri Lanka. This will be the 350th night sky observation camp conducted by NCAS and NCAAS. We have planned to share our astronomical knowledge with participants by giving talks on different fields of astronomy with greater emphasis on the value of dark skies and how to reduce light pollution. We also have planned to show them mars, saturn, jupiter, venus and some deep sky objects. There will be a special lecture about Moon and also we planned a moon mapping session. There will be activities to motivate them throughout the night. We will give them the oppurtunity to make their own water rockets and launch them.
