For 3 nights we had an amazing program at Kaktoos Café in Pul e Sorkh, Kabul: The Planetarium. Planetarium is like a theater built for educational and entertaining shows about astronomy and night sky. We had a small inflatable portable planetarium dome which inside of it there was a special project in the center. Visitors had to sit down around the project to have a good view. Mr. Bakhshi was explaining about our solar system, its planets, their moons and constellations. We also had a brief introduction about black holes, the milky way and Andromeda galaxy.


Our visitors were students, journalists, Kaktoos cafe staff and even elderly. Fortunately we had some ladies among them too. Our program was free for everyone. If you missed it, you can attend The Planetarium tonight at Kaktoos café.
