Celestron’s Mission StarTalk

CELESTRON'S MISSION STARTALK:

Thanks for volunteering for Mission StarTalk, sponsored by Celestron. New missions begin every Monday on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Missions end Sunday nights at 11:59 PM PST.

Your mission is to correctly identify the celestial objects we show you, all of which have been photographed using Celestron telescopes and astronomy equipment and accessories.

IMPORTANT: Correct answers must include either a Messier catalog number or a New General Catalog Designation, along with the hashtag, #CelestronMissionStarTalk.

Jwalk -rasa -m 31-090414 For instance, if Mission 1 showed  you a photo of  the    Andromeda  Galaxy, the correct answer would  be either  M31 or NGC224. You  may use  both, but if one is  correct  and the other is not,  your  answer will be considered  incorrect. In this  example, simply  saying “Andromeda  Galaxy”  would not be a correct answer.

 

Volunteer for all 6 Missions: The Sky’s The Limit!

Play all 6 missions – one correct answer will be selected at random per mission to win a Celestron SkyMaster 15x70 Astronomy Binocular. Correct submissions from all missions will be entered to win a Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Computerized Telescope.

No purchase is necessary to enter. One entry per mission per social media channel (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram). All entries must include the hashtag, #CelestronMissionStarTalk. Winners will be contacted by Celestron using social media, so you must be following Celestron on the social media channel from which you enter so we can message you.
