Alert Notice PEP #00: Special Alert Notice to AAVSO Photoelectric Observers [2337+56 Nova Cassiopeiae 1993] [V705 Cas]

Note: This Notice was originally titled:
SPECIAL AAVSO ALERT NOTICE TO AAVSO PHOTOELECTRIC OBSERVERS

It has been given the somewhat odd name "Alert Notice PEP #00" in 2016 so it will fit in with the other special PEP Alert Notices created by Aaron Price in 2001-2004. Eventually all of these special PEP Alert Notices will be renamed to something more consistent with Alert and Special Notice procotols. EOW 5/5/2016

February 8, 1994

2337+56 NOVA CASSIOPEIAE 1993  [V705 Cas]

This bright nova, discovered on December 7.47 UT by Syuichi Nakano of Japan at photographic magnitude 6.5 (see AAVSO Notice 179), has been very well monitored by observers worldwide. Its optical light curve, created from observations reported to the AAVSO, indicates it brightened to about visual magnitude 5.7 by mid·Oecember, and then has slowly declined to magnitude 8.4 by February 7, with fluctuations as much as 1 magnitude in amplitude.
