Post Whether visitors are permitted to see the Chandrayaan-1 launch?

Dear Sir/Madam,
Greetings!

I am Subathra, from Bangalore, India. I am interested to know whether visitors are permitted to see the launch of Chandrayaan-1 on October 22, 2008 at Sriharikota.

If yes, then what is the process involved in this. Does any registration required.
Would like to hear the possibility of watching the launch.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Subathra

Hi All,

I am from Bangalore and I wish to see the launch live at Sriharikota. I have spend hours trying to find whether they have any arrangements for visitiors at/near the launch site. I couldn't get any info regarding this.

I dont want to miss this oppertunity. So if you have any clue, do share it with us.

cheers

You can read my blog, insanelypositive, about my trip plans. I'll leave for Chennai on 19th and hope to come back on 24th

cheers to life

Default Great spectacle

We started at 2:30am from chennai and reached there by 4:30. They didn't allow us into the main viewing area but we ould see the launch clearly from nearby location. We took the road between Sulurpet and Sriharikpota and turned right tinto a kuccha road about 4 km from the main gate....We got a nice view across the lake...The thundering sound reached us about 10 sec after the flare became visible. After about a sec, the rocket disappeared into dark clouds only to reappear after crossing the cloud layer....The trail kept becoming longer and after about 10 sec, the rocket wasn't visible anymore.....Lot of claps from all spectators
