Dear Colleague,

This is to seek your collaboration and help with dissemination of an educational endeavor initiated by the Nehru Planetarium, Nehru Memorial Museum and Libray, the Public Outreach and Education Committee, Astronomical Society of India and involving a very large collaborative of planetaria, research institutions and Astronomy outreach organisations.

For the details of the initiative and the collaboration involved in the same.

You may be aware that an inspiring close conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, set to take place on the 21st of December 2020 is unfolding right in front of our eyes as we speak.

We are proposing a challenge for students/teachers  and anyone who may have an interest in Astronomy and who also love to tinker with their hands to undertake science related activities.

Please disseminate in your mailing list to whosoever maybe interested, to look up this document elucidating the proposed Samanta Chandrasekhar Challenge,

Please disseminate the same and let us know that you would be joining the collaboration.

Starting today itself, over the coming fortnight, this activity could be taken up.

Please alert potential participants that, all those who submit at least 3 observations of the changing angular separation between Jupiter and Saturn taken with such simple equipment, will receive a merit certificate and some selected winners of the challenge will be invited to be a part of a Meet the Astronomers program online which will be conducted by the collaboration.
