Here are links to the APOD archive page with images of the S-W 3 and the Ring Nebula!

Comet & Ring #1

Comet & Ring #2

For those visitors and maybe even some locals who might be lucky enough to have clear skies for Sunday evening, here's a link to an article in Sky & Telescope about Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 passing in front of the Ring Nebula, M-57, on Sunday evening. No doubt imagers the world over will be posting their shots of this spectacular alignment within a few hours or days afterwards. To see for yourself, click below:

It is suppose to be clear this Sunday Night. Since this will be at a good time at night for me, I will attempt to sketch it. I'll let you know how it goes.
