Have you ever travelled into space! Gazing at the stars, planets and comets and wondering at the amazing invention of god. Have you ever looked up at the night sky with a breathless feeling of wonderment and amazement? Space has always enthralled mankind. Who is not fascinated and keen to unravel the mysteries of this universe? How many time have we gazed up at the twinkling stars and transient moon at night wondering what dark secrets are bottled in them.

 

Well, one such place on earth which helps people to know more about the vast space is the planetarium.
