Sixty students of the Astronomy Club along with club in charge Ms.Neeta Gupta  and other teachers visited Astroport Sariska 260 km away from Delhi on  a sky watch as an intrinsic part of the astronomy curriculum  for the astronomy club members on 7th April 2016. The students observed Jupiter and it’s Moons, various constellations, Saturn with it’s ring and the craters of the moon. The night long observation primarily consisted of constellation, stars and planet identification in real sky time along with multimedia presentation. Empirical activities like finding North and Latitude through Pole star, Azimuthal and Altitude of stars in sky were also conducted. It was a visual treat for the students to observe the  amazing objects in the sky through 200 mm Reflector telescope . The students came back enriched with astronomical knowledge and looking forward to a career in astronomical science. The aim of the trip was to increase scientific temper in students and develop a positive attitude towards science and environment. I was also intended at making children more inquisitive about our  wonderful universe. The trip nurtured  life skills, team spirit, interpersonal skills and media interaction amongst students.  The students and  teachers enjoyed their stay at Sariska and were very happy with the kind of experience they had while staying for one night under thou-sands of stars.
