12 April 1961, Yuri Gagarin, with his spacecraft Vostok, completed an orbit of the Earth.  

Our events purpose was to celebrate this days anniversary. We made presentations about, astronomy, beginning of rockets, Life and death of Yuri Gagarin, Is there life beyond the atmosphere and if there is at what form?, and lastly Astrobiology; Biology of Aliens. The slides were made by Yahya Kemal Altınok, Kutlu Kağan Şahbaz, and Merve Ak.

After our presentations in collaboration with Mustafa Aydın, Murat Sana and Yunus Emre Aydın about Astrophotography, how to begin it, which camera is better use for this field and what does it require for a night of astrophotography. 

After all those, which we held a tea break between every slide-show because tea is important, came the documentary display. 

Our telescopes were always set up so if anyone wanted to see an object in space could use them at will.

The event beginned at 20.00 and ended at 02.00 with Turkish timezone.
