May 14 – Very very close to Beehive Cluster, M44. Photography opportunity C/2002 T7 (LINEAR) & C/2001 Q4 (NEAT) C/2002 T7 (LINEAR) – discovered by MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory Near Earth Asteroid Research project.\ Will be in the same sky with C/2001 Q4 NEAT during MAY.

24 Comets of 2004 C/2002 T7 (LINEAR) & C/2001 Q4 (NEAT) C/2002 T7 C/2001 Q4 23 MAY Looking WEST around 8 PM

26 Viewing Mars MARS will slowly glide away from EARTH. Remain a BRIGHT evening ‘star’ until middle of 2004 Apparent Size will be only 1/3 compared to during opposition August 2004.

27 Viewing VENUS Now till APRIL 2004 – will be the BRIGHTESS object (apart from Moon) after SUNSET Look WEST – will slowly glide towards NORTH until APRIL. In MAY 2004, drop FAST towards horizon, increase in apparent Size (Will appear as crescent moon in telescope) In Mid-JUNE till JULY, will suddenly appear in the MORNING sky! SUPERB target, remains bright and easy till END OF Busy year for VENUS

28 Viewing JUPITER EASY target for small telescope. SPECTACULAR target for big ones Rises in JAN 2004 around MIDNIGHT. Mid FEB 2004 – rises around 9 PM 3 rd MARCH – reaches OPPOSITION. Will remain in the sky the whole night. Rises when the SUN sets By JUNE 2004 – Overhead when SUN sets

29 Viewing SATURN 31 st Dec 2003 – reaches OPPOSITION. Will remain in the sky the whole night. Rises when the SUN sets NEVER EVER REFUSE an offer to look at Saturn through ANY telescope.!! SUPERB target, remains bright and easy till mid of By APRIL 2004 – Overhead when SUN sets
