Today, we had solar observation for ~500 high school students from Uniglobe Higher Secondary School at Godawari as a part of their field trip. During the program, students were provided an opportunity to observe the sun through Personal Solar Telescope and 8 inch SkyWatcher Dobsonian telescope. Students will now prepare their reports on the sun and submit as a partial fullfillment of their internal evaluation.

Mr. Suresh Bhattarai, our executive chairman, conducted the solar observation with 8 inch SkyWatcher Dobsonian for the participants. He also explained different features of the sun to the participants.
The observation opportunity was the first for all the students with such arrangement!
