A two-week evening sky observation-cum-interaction programme is underway at the Guwahati Planetarium. It is being organised because Mars and Saturn are at their closest approach to Earth during the end of May and towards early June.
‘The view of the planet Mars will be spectacular during the closest approach with its immensely reddish tinge. Besides, observing the giant planet Jupiter with its gas bends and four Galilean moons along with the planet Saturn with its majestic rings is always impressive,’ shared officials of the planetarium.
The programme is being organised jointly by the Planetarium and Pragjyotish Amateur Astronomers’ Association
