In this multimedia presentation, the audience will be taken through a bird’s eye view of the magnificent wonders of the night sky as visible through the bare human eye as well as through telescopes, both small and large.
This includes the members of our own solar system, the innumerable and different types of stars that ‘stud’ the night sky, a variety of apparent groupings of them leading to the commonly perceived stellar constellations and not so well recognised star clusters and multiple stars.
