South Plains Astronomy Club

Observing Under The Dark West Texas Skies

The presentation for the February meeting was on Messier Marathon by Tom Heisey. I covered the history of Charles Messier and his object catalog, the start of Messier marathons, marathon tips, and many links to support marathon and Messier Observing Program by the Astronomical League.

You can also visit our permanent Messier Marathon page in the members’ section for more information, links, and downloads.
