Messier Marathon (lab)
I am really excited for this one. As quoted from Ashcroft Observatory website:
Where we stay up all night hunting for all the Messier objects available to us. We’d really only have to be out there until people stopped showing up but it could conceivably go all night. Saturday, October 13, 8:00 pm – Really Late! This is an open house, feel free to come up whenever, but the Messier Marathon will take at least several hours.
If you are interested in what exactly the Messier objects are, I found this website to be quite useful.
M1: Crab Nebula
M2: Globular Cluster in Aquarius
M3: Globular Cluster Canes Venatici
M31: Galaxy in Andromeda
M33: Galaxy in Triangulum
These are a few of the Messier objects I hope we get to see.
