AOYA kids have skilfully captured this wide field image of the constellation Orion with much of its surroundings in the western skies right after nightfall.  The Zodiacal Light is very evident in this image too as it stretches in the bottom up untill the middle of the frame. In the coming few days our dedicated members will continue their efforts to capture more vivid images of this interesting celestial phenomenon. Of course phtography through a telesopes will never serve this purpose, therefore our kids will endeavour to capture it through a low power camera body and zoom only.

    About Me

    We are living for one goal; to educate school kids and the public in the Kurdistan Region (northern Iraq) of Astronomy and related sciences to help them better understand and appreciate the world around them. We believe this vital knowledge will further implant the spirit of accepting differences (religions, politics, social and cultural) among the youth and grown up people.of this region.
