Messier Marathon - May 3

Telescopes

Bring your telescope and join us Friday, May 3 for our 2019 “Messier Marathon” Star Party. We start shortly before sundown and go until the last telescope is standing. Experts will be on-hand to assist newer observers in setting up and using their telescopes.

The term “Messier Marathon” is used to describe an effort to observe all 110 deep sky Messier objects in one night. This is possible during several times of the year, but all 110 objects are most accessible to viewers in the spring months. This year’s Messier marathon has been set for Friday, May 3.
