Small correction to Alert Notice 665

In Alert Notice 665, I said that R Aqr "is moving too close to the Sun to observe from the Northern hemisphere". I should not have said "moving too close", as the Northern season for R Aqr is just starting, not ending. The point is that R Aqr is too close to the Sun for Northern observers right now to observe without great difficulty, but easier for Southern observers as their nights are growing longer. I have edited the online version of the Alert Notice. My apologies for the error, and my thanks to Brian Skiff for letting me know.

Good observing,

Elizabeth
