The COEP Astronomy Club 

  

A long way through the window into the night sky, where not only the journey is alluring, so is the destination. Yes, it's the universe; with all it holds, it's calling for us. And who wouldn't want to explore? 

Since its foundation in 2004, the COEP Astronomy club has sought to build on this fascination and brings innovation and passion to its vision of spreading the awareness and knowledge of astronomy and space sciences to the students. 

The COEP Astronomy club, an ambitious team driven by amateur astronomers, has managed to conjure up a lot of interest amongst the masses in the science and principles of astronomy. 

We firmly believe astronomy is for everyone. 

Integrating technical skills with astronomical science, the club has initiated many projects, some of which being the construction of one of India's largest amateur-built telescopes – a 12" Newtonian reflector, construction of a mobile-inflatable planetarium dome, an amateur radio telescope, etc. 

The club strives to quench a student's thirst for astronomy by organizing various exciting events such as StarParty (a fun-filled night of star-gazing), Kidstronauts (India's first of its kind Astro-Creativity Competition), Planetarium visits, Quiztronomy (a quiz to test people's knowledge on everything seen beyond the night sky), Telescope building and handling sessions (telescope – every astronomer's weapon), and many more. Public outreach sessions for underprivileged children and school children to introduce them to the basics of Astronomy are also conducted.  

Sharing knowledge through different modalities, the club introduces Astronomia, the site (https://coepastroclub.wordpress.com/author/coepastroclub/) where we regularly publish blogs, with 50+ blogs on various interesting topics, from space laws to a guide on pulling the Earth. Abstracts, a solely research-oriented segment. Astroesque, a weekly segment to explore the world of astrophotography, is a platform for professionals and amateurs to interact and learn.  

The club has designed a marvelous astronomical calendar (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jcYp_wM8k5PwuwuWHHc-AlNgMZ3lmaP7/view) to witness the stellar moments appearing during the year. 

Discussions and brainstorming sessions are held weekly, wherein members explore the cosmos. 

Join us as we explore. After all, the sky is just the lower limit.
