Sunspot #891 & 73P

 • SEC Solar Region Summary (which should be posted soon)

METEOR WATCH: (spaceweather.com) ~ On May 31st, Earth will pass five million miles from the dusty orbit of comet 73P/Schwassmann Wachmann 3. The great distance means a meteor shower is unlikely [pdf]; but 73P is such a strange comet that even the unlikely is possible. Be alert for meteors slowly cutting across the sky in the nights ahead: sky map.
