June 30, 2011: Since its outburst on 2011 April 14 (see AAVSO Alert Notice 436), the recurrent nova T Pyx has been very well monitored by visual and instrumental observers who can reach -32o. Thank you! Currently T Pyx is visual/V magnitude ~8.3.
April 15, 2011: Dr Bradley Schaefer (Louisiana State University) has initiated an international campaign to observe the recurrent nova T Pyx during its current eruption (see AAVSO Alert Notices 436 and 437). He asks the assistance of the AAVSO and our observers, and writes:
Campaign to monitor the recurrent nova T Pyx throughout 2011 eruption
April 15, 2011: Further to AAVSO Alert Notice 436, a fast photometry observing campaign has been initiated by Dr. Bradley Schaefer (Louisiana State University) to monitor the recurrent nova T Pyxidis throughout its current eruption.
February 1, 2011: Sumner Starrfield (Arizona State University) has informed us that Chandra is currently observing the cataclysmic variable T Pyx. He and his colleagues would like supporting optical monitoring of the star during the visitation. One visit is happening now; the next and final visit will occur on February 5 (UT).
