This year, for the first time in a long time, the Santa Cruz Astronomy Club is going to have an informal Messier Marathon. Bill has graciously provided us with a Messier Object Checklist to use. Just start at the top and work your way down. The objects are listed in an order to maximize the number of objects you can view. Some are easy, some are of medium difficulty and some are just plain tough. The list is attached just below here and is also attached in the calendar (just click on the Bonny Doon link on March 24th). Click on Read More for more information.
For those who do keep track of the number of objects that you were able to find - you can send your list or total to Ron via the Members List and we'll see how many we can get.
So, whether you're up for a challenge to see how many you can find or would just like to come out and share the views with us, it should be a fun time.
Cancelled due to rain
