Astrological Musings

Trifid nebula.jpgWhen the New Moon occurs near the spring equinox and the sky is dark, there is an opportunity to view up to 110 deep sky objects as catalogued by Charles Messier. These include galaxies and nebulae and star clusters that are normally not visible with amateur astronomical equipment. 

For you astronomy buffs out there, Universe Today has provided a tour guide to view all 110 objects at a leisurely pace over an eleven-day period, ten at a time.  They started yesterday though, so you may have to do a bit of catching up!
