Omega Centauri

Well, I did something this morning while out looking at Comet Lulin that I promised myself I wouldn’t do.

I peeked at Omega Centauri.  Yup, I’m busted because it’s not far enough into the year for such voyeuristic parlays into space.

Omega is best seen in the early Summer, and better yet from a place more southerly located than New Mexico…..  I really get enamored with it each year at TSP

but I fell off the wagon and peeked at it from my yard this morning.  Now I’m afraid I’m pining away for warmer climes and a trip south.

Dang it.    The Texas Star Party is in April this year, so at least I don’t have to wait THAT long to see Omega in prime sky.

Yeah, right….  I must concentrate on comets and forget about that darn globular cluster of stars.
