Moon watching

The New Year started with an interesting Astronomical lesson for us. The team from Nehru Planetarium arrived by 6:30 pm with their astronomical equipment.

The evening started with a powerpoint presentation explaining the Solar system, planets and other interesting facts about Astronomy.

Through powerful 4 inch Telescopes from Nehru Planetarium, and with a lively Power point presentation, residents of Borivli and Dahisar enjoyed a celestial feast late evening on the 6th of January 2012.

Then the crowd formed lines to first see Jupiter, which was clearly visible with three of its moons shining bright.


After that, they saw the moon with its craters clearly through another telescope.

Thanks to Mr. Prabhu and team from Vintage Football ground for allowing New Link Road Residents Forum to use their grounds for this occasion free of charge.
