Special Notice #49: Possible Nova in Nor [V390 Nor]

June 17, 2007

Bill Liller has informed us of a possible nova in Norma [V390 Nor], with the approximate coordinates of

RA 16:32.2 DEC -45:08 J2000

with approximate magnitude of 9.4 and outburst date around June 15.086UT.

Michael Linnolt confirmed this new object visually, with approximate location of

16:32:12 -45:08:40 J2000

and an approximate magnitude of V=10.2 on June 17 at 0811UT.

Mati Morel has created a sequence for this possible nova, and we have added it to VSP. You can get a chart for the object by going to

2016 link: https://www.aavso.org/vsp

and entering the coordinates

16:32:12 -45:08:40

I find settings of 40arcmin FOV and limiting magnitude around 15 gives a pleasing chart for this field.

Good luck and clear skies! We will provide more information as it becomes available.
