About Me

An amateur astronomer for last 15 years, one who chose to make his profession popularizing astronomy and making the society look up at the night sky, without becoming a professional astronomer. An experienced observational astronomer having spent thousands of hours under the night sky, Amar is also far too involved in many other creative areas of astronomy. He's an: invigorated communicator; extremely expressive writer; author of the upcoming deepest book on amateur astronomy; encyclopedia on 20th century comet hunters & discoverers; ccd camera imager; astrosketcher; dark sky conservator & fighter of light pollution; pioneer of astronomy tourism in India; and more. Amar happens to be the first accidental discoverer of a celestial object (Mira-type variable star) using a ccd camera in personal capacity, in the modern history of India! World renowned comet hunter David Levy honoured him with his own asteroid discovery as "380607 Sharma"! He's India's *most* active amateur astronomer!
