Event Details

Workshop 3: Exploring the backyard: Our Solar System


Karachi Astronomers Society and The Second Floor (T2F) present a new series of astronomy workshops being conducted under “Science Ka Adda”, a PeaceNiche initiative.

Each workshop will entail a short presentation followed by a Q/A session and will end with telescopic observations, provided the sky is clear.

We hope that through these workshops, science enthusiasts can come together and learn from our team of amateur astronomers who have dedicatedly given their time to broaden interest in Practical Astronomy – a subject that is rarely explored in depth within the parameters of our formal education system.

Workshop 3: Exploring the backyard: Our Solar System
Keeping track of the sky was vital for ascertaining the seasons before the invention of calendars and clocks. Different civilizations over the course of history have kept track of movements of celestial bodies and recorded several supernovae and comets, signifying their obsession with the heavens above.

In this workshop, an introduction will be provided into the science of astronomy. Participants will be given an overview of the sky, how to navigate with the help of stars in absence of a compass and other instruments, what’s out there to see in the sky, why the sky is divided into different constellations, finding your approximate location on earth and time by looking at the sky, and wonderful insights about the stars.

Speaker: Imran Rasheed is an IT manager at Karachi American School. He is the founding member of the Karachi Astronomers Society and is its incumbent President.
