Graph say it all.. "The Passion, Handwork, Dedication and Results" of BAS Volunteers.
BAS breaks its last record of 5 successive sidewalk astronomy nights held during 100 hours of astronomy during early this year.
On the 6th day, the response had been tremendous, we choose Devaiah Park in Malleshwaram, for sidewalk and having an advantage of mass gathering in the nearby temple proved advantageous. Over 550 people witnessed Moon and Jupiter. Initially there was very bad response, but as the prayer time ended in the temple, the line started growing.
Landmark achievement today - cumulative 2090 people !
