French 18th-century comet hunter Messier would be an obscure figure in modern astronomy had he not compiled a list of things he was not looking for in his telescopes. His nuisance list of fuzzy, nonmoving, cometlike objects became his chief historical claim to fame: a remarkable list of the brightest galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae in the northern sky. Our guest lecturer Sarah Vincent will share images and discuss these objects and their locations.
Planetarium Feature Shows and Guest Lectures are presented at 8 p.m. on Fridays when the Night Sky Show is scheduled, and at 1 p.m. Sundays when a special matinee is scheduled. Admission is $6 ($5 seniors age 60+ and children age 12 and under).
