AAVSO Special Notice #49

Possible Nova in Nor
June 17, 2007

Bill Liller has informed us of a possible nova in Norma,
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
http://www.aavso.org/observing/charts/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.
Arne Henden
