Messier Marathon - May 3 CANCELED

Telescopes

Messier Marathon CANCELED due to forecast of clouds and potential precipitation tonight!

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.

NOTE: Possible informal event being planned

Don Martin may try to schedule an informal Messier Marathon/Star Party at our Kennemar Dark Sky site. Please email Don Martin at: WD.Martin.08@gmail for information.
