The Messier catalog includes some of the most fascinating astronomical objects that can be observed from Earth’s Northern Hemisphere. Among them are deep-sky objects that can be viewed in stunning detail using larger telescopes but are also bright enough to be seen through a small telescope. This characteristic makes Messier objects extremely popular targets for amateur astronomers possessing all levels of experience and equipment. They are so popular, in fact, that they have inspired a special award from the Astronomical League (an organization for amateur astronomers) given to observers who are able to spot each of these objects. Those who succeed receive a certificate and are given the distinction of being in the Messier Club. (Hubble Messier Catalog Facebook Live Program Oct ober, 19, 2017.)

Your tip about looking just to the side of what you want to see is very valid, Trying to view Andromeda Galaxy M31, in a light polluted medium sized town, with just my naked eyes, I have found that if I look slightly above, below and left and right of it is a good trick to catch sight of it, it is still a faint and fuzzy blob but I find it very beautiful., and very humbling to know that that massive galaxy dwarfs our own.

Soo, no one put a break on Hubble? to Slowing it down ? Is there an app for Hubble? Would love that.

lillian ballard says:

OUR Galaxy is moving into a new area of Space. Are you ready?

lillian ballard says:

Thank you. I thought something was wrong with my eyes,when I had to look above the star to see it.

lillian ballard says:

Not being professional video people,I appreciate you both and your clear explanations.Thanks

Oh come on everyone, this stuff was interesting. Who cares about production. Go watch network channels if you need production. They'll also put stock CGI and the Batman music in for dramatic effects for you.
