Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences in the space below (150 words or fewer, 1000 character maximum).

I am a member of the "Starry Night" group. Our aim, in this group, is to make villagers familiar with the sky over their heads. We travel to different urban areas, and try to make people familiar with the "Night Sky". We tell them what the celestial objects such as the sun, planets, stars and galaxies are, what an astronomer does, and how a Telescope works.

Our group stays in the village for a night, and shows the villagers the beauties of the starry night. We give them different books and catalogs about astronomy and show them attractive constellations and objects, we also teach them how to protect their dark sky against "Light Pollution"

I think it is a great achievement to help people of the urban area to know their universe better. They usually know a little about sky, and you can see their happiness at the end of the tour.
