Sky & Tel reports that a 5th mag Nova has been spotted a short distance NW of beta Centaurus.

The southern Hemi always gets the good stuff. I'm having Hemi envy. :grin:

Yes we did but it occurred during S Arizona's monsoon season so I never had a chance to see it; mostly clear in the daylight hours and clouds during the night time. :cloudy:

Our local forecast for tonight is clear – albeit a bit windy (looks like we can’t have everything – a nova and clear skies and no wind; I’ll take the wind). It’s been cloudy for days – and going to be cloudy for days… how fortuitous is this clear night!! I can’t wait.
