    Thanks for the article. It's a little bit late in the year and Sagittarius is too low for me to observe now so I will probably not get the opportunity to see it.

    You should be able to. I can see that part of the sky to the SW, and I'm at lat 39N. Slightly further north than you.

    I've got some trees blocking the view nearby the horizon, that's the problem for the most part.

    That's my problem too, I'm at 53N with a row of tall tree about 300 yards to the South, so the Nova's blocked from my view

    I like the way you think!

    Seriously though I'm headed out for the beach this weekend (green zone) and I'll have an unimpeded view down to the horizon in the south and the west, so I'll give it a shot.
