Philippine Messier Marathon 2013

The Philippine Messier Marathon Open is an annual star party conducted under the dark clear skies of Caliraya, Laguna, where astronomy-enthusiasts in the country gather to observe and meet fellow enthusiasts. The highlight of the event is the messier marathon — astro-enthusiasts attempt to observe and identify all the 110 m-objects in just one night. This year, the first wave of the event (there will be a series of stargazing events) will be on March 9, 2013, at Eco Saddle Resort in Caliraya, Laguna. Interested parties are encouraged to confirm their attendance in the Philippine Messier Marathon 2013‘s event page.

Stargazing in Caliraya (November 26, 2011)

I went to a dark-sky site last weekend for an overnight stargazing with fellow astro-enthusiasts from the University of the Philippines Astronomical Society (UP Astrosoc) and the Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP). Weather did not cooperate as we were clouded out. No deep-sky images captured, but it was fun! Smiley Looking forward to the next star party!
