I would just like to point out that the much awaited comet for the northern hemisphere, Q4, will be around its brightest tonight. Look for a fuzzy, nubulous sphere in the south west sky tonight; it will be to Sirius', a star in Canis Major, 11 o'clock...just above it and more towards the south. It is can be seen with binoculars, or if there is no city light pollution, with the eyes. It will hover around magnitude +2 for a few more days. Look out for comet LINEAR C/2002 T7 in June as well.

Hi TC!!

Thanx for the heads up: of course, it's raining here where I am (in UK) - just as it was with the recent Moon eclipse...


I think this must be a conspiracy - and I hate to think what awaits with the transit of Venus on 8th June - probably snow!!


I hope you have clear sies, however - happy viewing!

Thanks! The skies will be clear here in Indiana tonight, so I will pull out my telescopes and observe not just the comet, but the western portion of the sky.
