From AstronomyOutreach network
The League's mission is "To Promote the Science of Astronomy" by:
Cosmic Academy is my brainchild, founded on December 7, 1980 to (1) promote the scientific understanding of Astronomy to the citizens of my city, Vadodara, and (2) finance my home-study of Astronomy. In running this experiment for over two decades, in my native India, in Australia, in Canada, and in the United States of America, I have acquired dexterous skills in promoting science, understanding management, and spreading astronomy education, many a times under some pristine night sky, to a spectrum of multicultural participants.
