I. S. McLean communicates: "A campaign to observe the long-period variable Mira (omicron Cet) around the time of the current light maximum (Oct. 18) has been organized informally by the University of Arizona. Direct invitations to several colleagues in divers fields were made earlier this year. As maximum light approaches, we here urge all interested members of the astronomical community to contribute in any way possible. Brief reports could be sent to the IAU Commission 27 IBVS (edited at the Konkoly Observatory, Budapest) or to me at the address: Steward Observatory, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, U.S.A. (telephone 602-626-2876)."
