2007 SAC Messier Marathon
March 17, 2007 @ 12:00 am - March 18, 2007 @ 12:00 am EDT
The Saguaro Astronomy Club of Phoenix AZ is sponsoring the 2007 All Arizona Messier Marathon again this year at the site south of Arizona City (32d 27' 45.2"N, 111d 43' 53.2"W). It will be on Saturday, March 17, 2007. See our website for details and map.
This is our yearly exercise in speed observing! Maybe finding all of the Messier objects in one night is a little crazy, but it is also a lot of fun. A great exercise for old and new observers. This allows you to practice skills such as learning the sky, recognizing magnitudes, starhopping and using your equipment.
