Update 28 Jan 2018:
People called us and asked
“If the moon eclipse is going to be seen with naked eye, why is that we should come to RainBow Island ?”
Answer to this is
- It will be good to have away from City lights, but near so that you can be back home in time, at RainBow Island we get good darkness which will help you enjoying the moon eclipse.
- Again, if you are alone watching something, its boring … when you are doing same thing in a group the enjoyment is more … imagine you are witnessing the moon eclipse with a group of 50 people … someone telling his own story .. opinions .. we think the enjoyment is totally different .. and that too assisted with Hot served dinner .. somewhere outside … along the backwaters .. in chilling cold … Surely you will enjoy an evening ..with family and friends … So come join the group …
You can come to RainBow Island to see the Total Eclipse, it will be total dark after switching off lights .. also we have arranged small telescope (although you can see the Eclipse by naked eye)
We will also give a small presentation about information on Eclipse so that you can understand and enjoy the eclipse more …
You can enjoy evening Pakoda + Tea, have Fog Dance (don’t forget to bring cloths for changing), see the Blue moon total eclipse, have a dinner and get back home at 9.30 pm night ….
Other option is you can stay back for Tent camping at Rainbow island and get back early morning after Bk fast + tea …
