Nice Color Photo of the Nova in Delphinus

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

Nova in Delphinus - PNV J20233073+2046041 at Mag. 6.1

Here is a nice image of the New Nova in Delphinus, visible in binoculars…..hard to see naked eye unless you are in a very dark sky….and know exactly where to look, but this is a very bright Nova…most don’t get above 8th magnitude.
