New observatory opened in Andijan

New observatory opened at the Babur park in the city of Andijan. It was created by the Astronomy Institute of the Uzbekistan Science Academy in cooperation with the International Babur Foundation and Andijan State University.

Here, all conditions have been created for observing celestial bodies with high accuracy thanks to powerful telescopes and other equipment. These devices will help students of mathematics and astronomy faculties of universities in Ferghana, Andijan and Namangan regions, as well as young people who are interested in astronomy.

Our great scientists, such as Abu Rayhon Beruni and Mirzo Ulugbek, made an invaluable contribution to the development of world science, and astronomy in particular. Now young researchers and students in the Ferghana valley have got an opportunity to strengthen their theoretical knowledge in practice.
