Amateur Astronomy Club (AAC) is an association of astronomy enthusiasts, who share a collective objective of spreading knowledge about the cosmos in the society. Ever since its inception back in 2012, AAC has been successfully conducting astronomy outreach events and overnight stargazing programs in and around the vicinities of Mumbai and Pune. Along with being equipped with skilled members and quality gadgets, our club has also been actively raising awareness about myths and misconceptions related to astronomy, especially in the rural areas.
