There is some significant activity in the GRS:

and

Not ideal for us northern observers I guess. I seem to remember that Jupiter was also low in our skies at the time of the S-L comet strike (1994?)

Jupiter sounds interesting !
Unfortunately I don't envisage I'll be able to observe the GRS event myself.
However, I recall the comet crash events myself (or at least the fairly immediate aftermaths - the actual crashes occurred just on the wrong side & we had to wait for the crash sites to rotate into view). However low down in the sky Jupiter was then, it was certainly well worth observing - and it continued to be so for several days - one of the most fascinating series of observations I experienced.
Best wishes from Cliff
