Friday, March 13th, 2015

Hi Astronomers!

The Bosscha Observatory, can clearly see the Orion in the sky as well!

Astro Bash is back and better this time round! Astro Bash XXXV we will be heading down to…. Lembang Indonesia! Much of our observation will be done at Bosscha Observatory which houses a 28″ Schmidt telescope!

Volcano eruption!

Did someone say volcanoes?!

Yeap, that’s right! We will be taking a look at some VOLCANOES during the trip! Not to worry, they will be dormant volcanoes, so no danger there.

Tangkuban Perahu, a dormant volcano situated 30 km north of the city of Bandung, Indonesia.

Not to mention that this also means that there will be HOT SPRINGS!

Followers of the Amazing Race would know about the hot springs at Tangkuban Perahu as during Amazing Race 23. The roadblock at Leg 9 had teams cooking hardboiled eggs in the hot springs of the Tangkuban Perahu volcano, so what would you give to feel like an Amazing Race participant yourself!

And hence, I’m sure you are all excited to find out more about the trip, the details are as follows:
