In the eighteenth century, when the astronomers of France and other parts of the world were engrossed in making new discoveries about the cosmos, Charles Messier was among those few who shined out for their noteworthy work. The sky had always intrigued Messier, ever since he was a child. He became popular after the discovery of some deep-sky objects, which gave a considerable lead to the astronomers of his time and later. For the astronomers of his time, the unidentified and hazy objects had always been perplexing. Messier made an attempt to identify these objects during his research on comets, which were his prime interest. Frustrated by those non-comet objects which had obstructed in his research of comets, he started to make a list of them. His findings, other than comets and planets, turned to a great discovery and were named “Messier Objects”. He discovered 104 objects, involving nebulae (any unclear bright area in the night sky) and star clusters (groups of stars). His hunt for comets was also fruitful, discovering 13 of them.
