Perhap because light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Great chart Mike! Mind if I use that for Realta's next issue? You can supply me with any info relating to it, if you wouldn't mind. You don't have an indication of magnitude on it though... you're slipping a bit!

The comet is supposed to lie within 4 degrees of The Pleaides on January 7th. Not close enogh for the same field of view with a telescope, but binoculars should get it (though that will make a difficult astrophotographic effort). It will make a great pairing!

Seanie,
I have a higer res version of that chart if you like. I'll e-mail it to you.
As for magnitude, it's something I thought of alright but can't seem to get the program to display magnitude, just date and/or time.
I can supply a table outlining magnitudeif you wish.

Or if you wanted to just pick a few of the dates, and print on the map, the corresponding magnitude?
