The Editors of Sky & Telescope

We have received many compliments on Alan Whitman's article "Beyond the Familiar Veil" in the September 2011 issue of Sky & Telescope. In it, Whitman describes how he viewed nine wisps within the Veil in addition to the two bright, well-known arcs and Pickering's Wedge.

Unfortunately, we made an error by using red to mark the areas that Whitman observed, making the article unusable by red flashlight at night. To remedy that error, we are publishing the article as a web PDF with red changed to black in the main text and gray on the chart. Click here to download the PDF.

We are also publishing the main chart in full-page form, again with red changed to gray. Click here to download the chart.
