Level: Arcane 4, Divine 5; Components: V, S, M/DF, F; Casting Time: 1 hour; Range: See text; Effect: Magical sensor; Duration: 1 minute/level; Saving Throw: Will negates; Spell Resistance: Yes
You can see and hear some creature, who may be at any distance. If the subject succeeds at a Will save, the scrying attempt fails. The difficulty of the save depends on how well you know the subject and what sort of physical connection (if any) you have to that creature. Furthermore, if the subject is on another plane or in some other dimension (such as the extradimensional space created by a clown car spell), it gains a +5 circumstance bonus to its Will save.

Body part, lock of hair, nail clippings, etc.
If the save fails, you can see the subject and the subject's immediate surroundings (approximately 10 feet in all directions of the subject). If the subject moves, the sensor follows at a speed of up to 150 feet.
The following spells, if active on the caster during the scrying, operate through the sensor: darkvision, read magic, tongues, and true seeing. Detect magical aura has a 5% chance per caster level of operating correctly through the sensor.
