Preparatory Workshop I for the Total Solar Eclipse 2009

Dates of the Workshop 28th and 29th of March 2009

The March workshop is meant more for school and college students from Delhi. The workshop will also look into what anyone staying back in Delhi, on the 22nd of July, might wish to do, in addition to discussing plans for those who wish to be located somewhere in the totality belt.

The workshop, specifically, looks at discussing the basics and circumstances of this eclipse, for a beginner, and concentrates on what is there for someone to do, who has practically no access to any equipment. The following will be the broad areas of discussions, demonstrations and idea exchanges. The sessions will be conducted by Nehru Planetarum, S.P.A.C.E., amateur astronomers and invited professional astronomers
