Science Club on the topic "Astronomy in Harrapan Civilization: Visual Approach" on 16th February 2020 at 4 pm      

The ancient civilization around the Indus valley is known for their engineering and planning. Their cities such as Rakhigarhi and Mohenjo-daro were Manhattan of their times. Curiously some of their ruined sites have astronomical secrets underlying them which only recently have come to light.

In this session Dr. B. S. Shylaja will uncover these new insights of Harrapan astronomy. What is more interesting is use of satellite imagery through planetarium grade visualization software to study the past which is novel approach.
