Astronomy Club Module 1 students of Apeejay School, Pitampura, measured precise geographic directions in the school ground. The student used a Gnomon Rod (a vertical stick planted in the ground) to measure the directions. Students carefully observed and measured the shadow of the Gnomon to precisely find the local noon time for this activity. The results obtained by students were appreciated as the directions obtained by the students matched the actual geographic north direction (checked in Google Earth) to a good measure. Students learnt about the importance of Geographic Directions, North, South, East and West and how the directions can be used to find planets and celestial objects like the moon in the sky.
Students were empowered to witness the International Space Station's visible pass on the evening of 6th April 2022 as well as Venus, Saturn and Mars in the eastern direction in the morning before Sun Rise. They then went on to learn about the historic measurement by Eratosthenes to measure the circumference of Earth and obtained encouraging results on the measurement of Earth. The Student groups recreated the Eratosthenes experiment and measured the circumference of the earth.
