Dear Observer,

I estimate that there is a ~50% probability of an outburst of 
Schwassmann-Wachmann 1 during the interval May 28.5 to June 03.5.

During this period, the comet is a morning object in Pisces at a solar 
elongation increasing from 53 deg to 58 deg.

>From the UK it will be visible low in the sky some 8-12 deg above the 
eastern horizon as seen from the south of the country around about 3.00-3.30 
am BST.

The comet is better placed for southern hemisphere observers / remote
