Steps to register for Chandrayaan 2 mission

This post was updated on July 18th, 2019

Chandrayaan-2 launch was planned for 14th July but got postponed because of technical issues. ISRO has not announced the new date but it has hinted tentative date to be 21st-22nd July. It is not clear if they will again ask for registrations or the same passes will work.

Registration for the launch gallery started on 4th July and closed on 6th July for the launch on 14th July. The seats were limited and were allocated on a first cum first serve basis. If you did not register for the launch and would like to view it from outside SHAR, you can check this post:

ISRO recently announced that it is opening a space theme park in SDSC (Satish Dhawan Space Center), SHAR and is going to allow selected number of Indian citizens to watch the rocket launches from the viewing gallery. The viewing gallery has a clear line of sight of the 2 launch pads.

    1. Hi,
      Hope you have already registered for the launch. Also, the launch is scheduled at 2:51 am on July 15th (late in the night on 14th July). For the launch in May at 5:30am, SHAR was running a shuttle bus from Sullurpeta Bus stand to Launch View Gallery. This is the email that I had received before the launch:

      Congratulations on registering for witnessing PSLV-C46 Launch scheduled at 05.30 am on 22.05.2019 (Wednesday Early hours) from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. For convenience of out station visitors APSRTC buses are being operated from Sullurpeta Bus stand to Launch View Gallery, SHAR Sriharikota from 02.30 am to 04.30 am (early hours of 22.05.2019) on payment basis, same will return back at 06.30 am to Sullurpeta Bus stand. Please ensure to reach venue 2 hours prior to launch for hassle free experience.

      I am expecting they would be doing the same for Chandrayaan-2 launch too. You will have to wait for their email on this.

      Regards,
      Priyanka
