Glad you enjoyed the VSS Circular, Daryl.

On the subject of Betelgeuse, we are hoping that Dr Mark Kidger, who wrote about Betelgeuse in this edition and the last one, will speak about the star during a BAA Wednesday webinar. Keep an eye on the webinar listings.

Back numbers of VSSC's can be accessed here.

reporting supernovae spectra

Hi Jeremy

Should supernova spectroscopic observations be reported independent of their inclusion in the database?   (SN 2020ue mentioned has 22 spectra and SN 2020hvf  has 5 in the database currently and there are recent spectra of 4 other supernovae)
