About AAC
At the Amateur Astronomy Club, we aim to develop an awareness about astronomy and astrophysics and to introduce people to the mysteries and the magic of the night sky. As members of this club, we are united in our passion for this subject and conduct events frequently to foster an interest in this field. Our most popular event, Starry Nights, allows participants a view of the night sky through the telescope. We are proud owners of a Skywatcher made Newtonian Telescope, with 200x magnification which allows us to view the craters on the moon in spectacular detail. Other popular objects visible through it are the rings of Saturn, Jupiter and it moons, Venus, Mars and the Orion Nebula.
AAC has its own committee for the Technical Fest Engineer. Situated on the ground floor of the MB, we have an exhibition of all the projects we have worked on and other models explaining fascinating phenomenon related to space. The highlight of this year’s Astro Committee was the rover Infinity 2.0. Modelled on the mars rover, it had a sturdy design and could be controlled remotely by an app. Other major attractions were the strobe light effect, where water droplets appeared to move upwards, the satellite tracker, which could point to satellites live as they passed overhead and even a model of Juno, the spacecraft sent to Jupiter.
