Mira (omi Cet) is brightening and has already passed magnitude 7. It will soon reach naked eye visibility on the way to its maximum later this year. It is still a bit early in the season for this star (culminates in the early hours of morning)  but can be caught already around midnight if one has a good view to the east.

 

Do not miss the opportunity to observe this wonderful star and follow its variations on this fast-going upward part of its cycle!

A few years ago we were out observing and a friend of mine wanted to see it. I said we could look, but it is normally pretty faint. I looked up, and there it was obvious to the naked eye. I didn't realize we were right at a maximum.
