Messier Marathon 2023

The North Central Kansas Astronomical Society will attempt another Messier Marathon for 2023. We are shooting for March 18th, weather permitting, with March 25th as our backup date. We will again have a virtual cooperative effort with astronomers from Kansas and Texas. We'll have our progress posted on our Messier Marathon site Messier site. We may even try a live stream of the event this year! Internet provided by NCKCN, and Cunningham Telephone & Cable & TV
