You immediately become aware of any attempt to observe you by means of a divination (scrying) spell or effect. The spells area radiates from you and moves as you move. You know the location of every magical sensor within the spells area.

If the scrying attempt originates within the area, you also know its location; otherwise, you and the scrier immediately make opposed caster level checks (1d20 + caster level). If you at least match the scriers result, you get a visual image of the scrier and an accurate sense of his or her direction and distance from you.
