Sky on Bike


Sky on Bike

The Sky on a Bike is an astronomy outreach program which has won funding from the International Astronomical Union (IAU) under the ‘Astronomy for Development’ category. This project has been introducing the wonders of the night sky to identified groups of economically disadvantaged and uneducated population in Indian villages with the aim to create scientific temper. Telescopes are carried on bicycles and set up at locations where public is gathered to show them the night sky. Educators and Volunteers explain the night sky and show the sky through telescopes, give colorful handouts and enact street plays. The objective is to foster science education and dispel myths, as myths related to celestial events are rampant in many areas of India.
