This workshop is designed to implement an intelligent computer vision algorithm to detect celestial objects in wide field deep sky astronomical images using Python programming language. This workshop will also aim to provide a broad overview of Computational Astrophysics that combines modern computational methods, advanced algorithms and original software implementations to discover new phenomena, and to make predictions in astronomy.

In July 1969, 600 million people on all the continents followed the first step of a man on the Moon, together with their family or friends, around a radio, sometimes a TV. To celebrate the 50th anniversary, On the Moon Again brought together 1350 events in 77 countries in 2019. Every year from now on, we want to feel this enthusiasm for the Moon again in a global, universal movement, transcending all borders.

We want everyone, young and old, to discover the Moon through an astronomical telescope in this worldwide celebrated event

Astronomy Magazine featured our images (of "Annular Solar Eclipse of June 2020") in an article "Corona Light" written by Prof Dr. Jay Pasachoff.

This was a collaborated work between Computational Astrophysics Lab of NCBC-NEDUET, Mike KentrianakisXavier Jubier and Dr. Jay.

Our observations and Xavier's simulations again show that the "true size of solar photosphere is slightly larger than value by IAU" as described in the article.

COMPUTATIONAL ASTROPHYSICS NCBC-NEDUET celebrating ( 50th anniversary of First Human landing on the Moon.) 2019 OFFICIAL EVENT REGISTERED ON

Scientists worldwide gather behind On the Moon Again to invite everyone to participate in this unifying event. On the Moon Again is an initiative of French scientists who coordinate this event with the contribution of thousands of volunteers and local coordinators. Everyone on Earth is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with our nearest neighbor.

The event is internationally organized on the night when the Moon is around first quarter. A first quarter Moon is visible in the evening right after sunset, a convenient time for most hosts and participants. Furthermore, the best lunar observing is typically after the sunset, where shadows are the longest, rather than at full Moon.

NCBC’s Computational Astrophysics Lab has planned to organize this NASA supported event. Participants will have a chance to look through an astronomical telescope to observe moon and celebrate 50th anniversary of First Human landing on the Moon. 

The event will be held on July (12-13), 2019 from 07:30-09:30 PM PKT at Port Grand, a recreational area built in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan.




20 OCT 2018


International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration held annually since 2010. One day each year in September or October, when the Moon is around first quarter, everyone on Earth is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with our nearest neighbor.

InOMN 2018 was organized and celebrated at NEDUET on 20th, October 2018. The event held from 1830 PM to 2100 PM PKT and was organized by NCBC. It was free and open to all public. Around 30 to 40 participants joined this event and observed moon using a refractor telescope. Moon was at waxing gibbous phase.
