Oh My Stars! Messier Marathon Demonstration

  • Valentine Farm Conservation Center 162 North Road Bethel, ME, 04217 United States (map)

In the 18th century, Charles Messier cataloged over 110 deep sky objects (star clusters, nebulae and galaxies).  Sometimes it is possible to see ALL of these objects on ONE night in the spring. Join star gazing enthusiast, Tom Hoffelder, for a night of enchantment.  Tom has been looking through a telescope since 1974 and has seen 100 objects in one night. Cloud/rain date April 14th. Telescopes provided or bring your own.
