Vizianagaram: He is a bureaucrat with a difference. Though he is busy discharging his duties, he spares some time for his passion i.e; astronomy and trying to create awareness among children about space science.
A Sambhu Prasad, excise superintendent of Vizianagaram, participates in science seminars across the country.
He also purchased a high- end telescope from the US by spending Rs 5 lakhs and installed it on his terrace and creating awareness among the children on galaxy, solar system, solar and lunar eclipses.
He witnessed lunar eclipse on Friday with his telescope, which was installed on the terrace of his apartment, and even he invited students and residents to view it.
The children and others enthusiastically viewed the eclipse through the most advanced device and amazed. But due to cloudy sky, the public could not watch the wonder more than 15 minutes.
K Anjali, a Class X student said: “It’s very nice to see the eclipse through advanced telescope. It’s a wonderful experience to see the moon during the eclipse”.
