Status update: None posted yet...

This event requires good sky conditions and, living in Ohio, we all
know how unpredictable the weather can be. Cancellation, if necessary,
will be announced here so please check back before heading out.

Public Observing Event
at the ACA Observatory

Virgo Galaxy Cluster
The Virgo Galaxy Cluster is well placed for observing. Come out to observe M87; a giant elliptical galaxy weighing one trillion solar
masses with a 6 billion solar mass black hole
at the center. Later we’ll try to observe the farthest object within reach of the 16 inch observatory telescope: 3C273, a quasar that
is 2.4 billion light-years distant and receding
from us at 16% the speed of light.
