About Us

About Us

Biruni Observatory was established in 1977 to become a center for education and research in astronomy and astrophysics. Over the last four decades, the activities in the observatory have been divided into two major educational and research groups. The research is done in theoretical and observational divisions. The observational groups basically conduct research by gathering data using different telescopes at the observatory or by collaboration with international teams…
