Nalanda College Astronomical Society began in year 1995 with limited number of students but it developed very quickly limited inside Nalanda College. It became an active society in Nalanda by increasing the knowledge about astronomy and modern day space administrations.
In this task "Night Sky Observation Camping" was a special feature. Nalanda College Astronomical Society did a great service by improving the curiosity and knowledge about astronomy of the school children in that period. In that period internet and information technology was in a low state of development. So we went through books and newspapers and other knowledge sources to get armed with Astronomical knowledge then we started to give our knowledge to other schools.
With beginning of the new millennium after 2000 our society stood as a strong and permanent society. In the beginning we were limited to our school, but then we stood as a active Astronomical Society out of school as well as inside the school. To deliver the knowledge to students about Telescope which is most essential equipment for astronomical studies, the telescopes we received as donations was the best help we got.
