Hi all

Between April 7th and 17th, the asteroid Juno will pass close to delta Virginis, Minelauva.  Juno will be magnitude 9.2.  This should make an interesting photography project, with images taken days apart showing the movement of the Juno.  Observers can make a sketch of the field and a couple of days later see which "star" moved.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Hi Paul, thanks for the notification, and the suggestion to sketch it over time... Great idea!

Clear skies,
