ASTRONOMICA (the Astronomy Club)

ASTRONOMICA is a group of students and staff of the Physics & Electronics department of St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad which does various activities related to Astronomy. The club organizes different activities like Astronight (a fun-filled night of star-gazing), telescope handling sessions, lectures, and online webinar sessions on astrophysics, observational, and theoretical astronomy.

Our basic aim is to develop scientific temperament among students and motivate them towards Astronomy. This club aims to spread knowledge about astronomy among students in a simple yet interactive way such that students can understand the basic concepts of astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology.
