Colin, rather than having to take time out to visit your largest WHS in town, take out a subscription and have S&N delivered to your door. Far more convenient - and I believe slightly cheaper,too. [:)]

Hmm! - crosses the top-end of Bootes around 20th oct...(Will be mag 8 according to Starry Night)

It'll be a very nice target to search out from the dark skies at the Kielder event.
(assuming we get any clear nights, that is)

I have repented in dust and ashes, went to Borders and purchased a copy of the September issue. I'll sign up for a subscription asap.

And the best news is gazers in scotland should be first to catch a glimpse, so glad my goto's working now. He, He, He.

HI All,
The race is on to who can spot it first once the Moons gone. Comet 177P Barnard 2(2006M3)now in Draco might be worth a looking out for.[8|]You see Pete someone does read your article.[:D]
