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.
