The observation time is very limited because Moon & Mars will set at around 8:30 PM. Each person will get a limited time to observe the phenomenon with the assistance of our staff.

There will be several telescopes set up and each registrant will be assigned to one, you will get to observe through one telescope only as the view is identical in all the other telescopes. The event is time-limited and we wish for everyone to get a chance to observe the phenomenon.

Images of the phenomenon will be shared with everyone through our social media after the event.
