Bangladesh is a country which perhaps, has the highest density of Astronomy enthusiasts in the world. During a Total Solar Eclipse Observation Programme in Dhaka on October 24, 1995, about 30,000 people converged into the Observation site at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar and police had to use force to disperse them and to save the lives of its organisers. On the late night of November 18, 1999, about 20,000 people assembled at the city centre and millions stood on the streets and on the top of their houses to witness the spectacles of Leonids Meteor Shower. The reason for their extraordinary love and fascination to observe the sky objects attributes much to their struggle for survival. From the time immemorial, the people of Bangladesh have been facing recurrent onslaughts of storms, cyclones and floods which have  forced them to develop an inherent habit to look at the sky regularly to observe  the movements of the clouds and to calculate when a storm, cyclone or  flood would come and when to arrange  safe refuse from its attacks. Being imbued and encouraged by their unique love and fascination for sky observation, the founders of Bangladesh Astronomical Society have undertaken the task for creating Astronomy and Space Science awareness among the people of Bangladesh  and to interlink them with the rest of the world….
