The moon is waxing crescent, making most of the night ideal for observing deep sky faint objects. We will be watching all the prominent constellations in the night sky such as Perseus, Orion, Ursa Major and Auriga; planets, star cluster, nebulae and the Andromeda Galaxy.

Prominent constellations such as Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Perseus, Orion, Ursa Major, Canis Major and Auriga will all be seen during the course of the night.

We may be seeing total four planets, the Moon, a few star clusters, nebulae and the Andromeda galaxy through a telescope during the session. We will wrap up the session with Mars and the mighty Jupiter, which will be seen during the dawn hours. Mercury can be seen just before sunrise. Unfortunately, Venus and Saturn are very close to the Sun and hence cannot be observed during the session.
