Exciting targets list 

Each month we produce a list of 6 objects in the night sky which can be observed with the Faulkes Telescopes, which are of particular interest. These targets are typically easy to observe and are given alongside instuctions on the best way to observe them with the Faulkes Telescopes. The list of Exciting Targets can be found here.
