Our Astronomy club team had organizaed so many programs back in '95 when India had the complete Solar eclipse. We had met people who "travel" to places to see Full solar eclipse. Was so good fun. Alas there are local astronomy clubs here to organize skywatching outings, presentations in schools etc. My interest in Astronomy started by field trip to watch Haley's Comet
