Sorry Andy,
Hadn't checked the calender in case your recent loss had temporarily stopped it!

No worries John. I update it from the Sky at Night magazine each month (permission granted by Admin). So far the May issue hasn't arrived.

Hi Andy.
The May edition seems very late this month, I wonder whether anyone else has theirs?

HI Andy,
I think one of the highlights of May will be a close approach of Schwassmann-Wachmann to the Ring Nebula on I think the 7th.Im not sure how close it will be but hopefully within a wide field EP.If this is so that will bring the clouds on!!![:D]
Regards Les.
