Messier Objects

I was considering what to name this blog, and I decided to go tongue in cheek on this and call it Messier Objects. For those of you who aren't astronomy buffs, the Messier Objects are a group of galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, etc. that are easily visible from the northern hemisphere using binoculars. (Named after Charles Messier, the French comet-hunter who felt all these shiny things which do not move were annoying.) My Messier Objects are shiny (and sometimes annoying), but do move quite a bit. They are my four kids who keep me so busy that I only get time to myself at night, when I could be outside with binoculars looking for galaxies, etc, but am too tired from cleaning the Mess.

I'll tell you all about us and start putting pictures and stories and all the interesting stuff on here tomorrow or the next day. But in the mean time, I'm going to consider it quite the accomplishment to have started this in the first place.

Have a happy night. I hope you enjoy it.

You can tell I'm Canadian -- before I actually read your explanation of "Messier" I was sitting here pondering the French and English pronounciations of the word! I guess both ways fit though! Have fun blogging!
