Just completed our annual December end Nature Study Camp tour. A hectic journey of over 700 km in a vehicle loaded with instruments including Telescopes, Projector, Screen, Power back up, small audio system, tents, study material and all other essentials to show Sky to over 1000 kids at different nature Study Camps organized by non-profit voluntary organizations at different off location in Himalayan terrain and foothills.
We spend one day at each camp showing the kids there sky, talking to them of sky, giving their in-born interest on space an extra impetus to look up to the sky with better methodology and in organized manner. We have been doing this for at least for last 15 years.
But 2017 trip was special as we could run two parallel teams to run simultaneously. Both put together, we have covered 6 camps with total over 1000 kids. Including camp organizers, officials, and local villagers there, we could show Moon to around 1200 persons in total through our telescopes.
Indeed dog tired we all are indeed physically. But highly charged and rejuvenated from inside. Thanks to all those camp organizers for inviting us and giving us an opportunity to take all these kids to a journey to the sky. We will get tired once again, exactly in this same way, next year.
