Report on the Results:  The location had a good view on the moon, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. The sky was clear with light pollution due to observation near an active city area. The weather was a bit humid. 12 of the attendees had planned the participation. 3 joined as they noticed the event taking place. 7 of the attendees were observing the planets through the telescope for the first time. Thus, it was an opportunity to stimulate a passion for astronomy in them. During the entire week, posts on women who contributed to space and astronomy have been posted on the social media account. Covering a range of more than 20 women in space over different eras. These were presented in the form of short questions. The hope was to inspire women to follow their passion in astronomy and find a role model in those who preceded them. Our attempt is to provide a hub where passion for astronomy can be fulfilled in those who seek it. As well as to create awareness of the heavens above us. This is the first event post covid-19 restrictions (some restrictions still in place). We hope next events can reach even larger audiences and in safer conditions.
