About Stargazing

Have you as a kid looked up at the sky and tried stargazing to find all the constellations you read in books? As a grown up, in such hustle bustle of city life, we are sure you might hardly be getting time to sit, relax, stare at the stars, and get lost in your favorite thoughts. Even if you take out time, it is difficult to find stars in city sky (because of pollution), forget all the constellations and patterns hidden in them. Well, it is not necessary for you to know about galaxies, constellations (even we didn’t focus on studies during our childhood) for joining us for stargazing. Come join us to escape the city life, even if it’s for the first time, to try something new.
