Welcome to complete guidance for taking admission for Skill Couse In Observational Astronomy. Throughout the course you will learn many aspects related to Observational Astronomy.

But first let us first understand what basically Observational Astronomy is all about?

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wonder what those stars could be? If what you are looking at are surely stars or Perhaps maybe a Planet? Observational Astronomy is all about observing and keeping data of the celestial objects it’s as simple as that!

But what is different from Stargazing?

Well Stargazing is looking up OR gazing at the night sky and admiring the beauty of celestial object. Say if you go for a weekend getaway for a stargazing session at outskirts of Mumbai for a day you observed stars planets and constellation you can call yourself as a Stargazer.

But Astronomers are those who study the Sky on regular basis. If you study as simple as the phases of Moon every day for a month and understand how the moon revolves around the earth you are already on the course of becoming an Observational Astronomer. What is more important here is keeping the data you can simply note down at what time you saw moon at how many degrees. Note the phase of moon or click the photo of moon every day! After keeping such data you truly enter the field of Observational Astronomy

Will there be Mathematical Calculations in this course?

NO! There won’t be any complex mathematical Calculus in our course. This course purely focuses on Observations. Small sums like additions subtractions and division will be discussed which anyone can do easily. More focus will be towards observation. Calculations are hardly 1% of the course material


You don’t need to be from Science background at all! You can be from Any field; lawyer, doctor, Office Clerk, College Student are few of many examples who have earlier done this course.
