Practical Astronomy workshops at T2F
This year has been great for Astronomy in Karachi and overall in Pakistan. The Karachi Astronomers Society conducted a series of Astronomy workshops at The Second Floor (T2F) during the month of August.
I conducted one workshop named “Exploring the Universe”. The workshop had content mainly focused towards the Practical side of Amateur Astronomy like learning constellations, finding an object in the Sky, the movement of the sky, the celestial sphere and coordinates, time zones, the changing sky and star hopping. These were the core concepts introduced in the workshop to bring a interest in the participants into the field of Practical Amateur Astronomy. We introduced them the use of telescopes and how they can find binoculars and telescopes from Karachi.

Through these workshops, science and astronomy enthusiasts came together and learned from our team of amateur astronomers who dedicated their time to broaden interest in Practical Astronomy – a subject that is rarely explored in depth within the parameters of our formal education system.
