Take The Sky at Night Moore Winter Marathon

Patrick Moore selects another 50 objects for his latest observing challenge


To celebrate 55 years of The Sky at Night in April this year, Patrick Moore picked his 55 favourite night sky objects and, over the month, challenged the public to spot as many as they could. The concept proved so succesful that Patrick has decided to set a new challenge, selecting another 50 objects, are you ready for the Moore Winter Marathon?

Some objects in the marathon are visible to the naked eye, others need binoculars or a telescope, and you can take part on your own or as a group. 

Early next year, The Sky at Night will feature a selection of your observations, from the simple to the most interesting. You can take part by downloading a Moore Winter Marathon observing form. There are two types, The Telescopic Targets Observing Form and the Naked Eye/Binocular Observing Form. To get them, just click the buttons below.

Download these PDFs, print them out and fill them in by hand. Then post them back to: The Sky at Night Moore Winter Marathon, BBC Bristol, Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2LR

To be included in the programme, forms must be received by 31 January 2013.
