Below is the summary of an Astronomer's typical workday:

Working in offices: A large part of their day is spent in the offices. While in office, they take care of the administrative activities, do tehir research, gather and analyse the data, and do the testing of the theories. They get a chance to work on various scientific instruments in order to study and examine the theories.
Travelling: An astronomer will get a chance to travel a lot from seminars to the conferences. Often times Astronomers are invited to give individual talks at other institutions. The scientists meetings take place quite often. Since there are very few astronomers in India or even around the world, they network really well to stay connected with other astronomers.
Teaching: Most Astronomers teach Astronomy and physics courses at Universities as guest lecturers. This culture is more prevalent in foreign countries but gaining some momentum in India as well. This is one way in which they can share their knowledge with the students community.
Reading: They do read a lot on what's happening around the world in the field of astronomy. What new developments are taking place, what new discoveries have been made. They stay in touch with all this information.
Observing: Observational Astronomers often have to go to various observatories to carry out their research. Many astronomers work mostly on the theoretical concepts and make observations most of the times.
