On 27th October 2018, Pak Astronomers Islamabad collaborated with the students of Govt College Sarwar Shaheed, Gujar Khan and organized a planetary observation session in Gujar Khan, a sub-urban city on the outskirts of Islamabad. The city is located roughly 80KM (50 Miles) outside of Islamabad, and as its not a major city of the country, the quality of education and opportunities are limited. Pak Astronomers took along its three telescopes and were delighted as the students had amassed in great numbers.
PakAstronomers Islamabad actively reaches out to people and organizations to increase the public interest in astronomy and relevant sciences. We organize observational sessions, lectures, workshops and other public outreach events. We also frequently collaborate with other organizations that share similar goals. Here you will find the details and pictures of some of these activities.
