Darling Hill Observatory Will NOT OPEN Tonight (Friday, 23 March) For The Messier Marathon


Posted by sasadmin, March 23rd, 2012

Greetings fellow astrophiles,

An excellent week of CNY weather has taken a significant turn for the overcast tonight and, very likely, tomorrow night. Our Messier Marathon is, therefore, cancelled for tonight, but a similar run can be performed for the vast majority of the Messier objects during our next few meetings. Check in tomorrow around 5:00 p.m. for the official word on Saturday. In the meantime, consider doing a little observing in the hi-res version of the ESO image below (click for the large version), a sliver of the sky with 200,000 galaxies (more information can be found at the Bad Astronomy post HERE).
