As part of International Year of Astronomy activities, Nehru Planetarium, Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, in collaboration with the Vigyan Prasar, Department of Science and Technology, will be conducting a series of public lectures in Interdisciplinary fields related to Astronomy, at the Nehru Planetarium, in the coming months.

One interesting aspect of these series of lectures will be that the evening lectures would be followed by a public skywatch with telescopes, from the Teen Murti campus. Making such a skywatch a regular feature associated with the Public Lectures, it is hoped, will give an opportunity of ensuring that more and more people view celestial objects through at least some moderate aperture telescopes, and rediscover for themselves, the inspiring views that had first been seen by Galileo 400 years ago.

These evening skywatches will be conducted by the Nehru Planetarium, in collaboration with the Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators (S.P.A.C.E.).

During the first talk on the 4th, the S.P.A.C.E., which has manufactured a number of small aperture telescopes, and distributed them to a large number of students, will be demonstrating the usage of the Galileoscope that they will be distributing to a large number of students countrywide, for conducting simple observing activities.
