Excellent catch Bob.
I have just been outside to have a look with binoculars. The sky is clear but I am in the middle of Melbourne and everything is washed out. So, no sighting for me. I will have to try for another minimum.
I have been trying for a while to observe Algol at one of it's minimums. It is real challenge here as Algol is very low in the north and only above the horizon for a few hours each night.
