AAVSO Special Notice #55

Possible Nova in Vul
August 8, 2007

CBET 1027 reports that Hiroshi Abe has discovered
a new bright nova around August 8, at coordinates
19:54:24.64 +20:52:51.9 J2000
and with brightness V=9.4mag.  A possible progenitor
star is visible on the POSS-I survey plates at
about V=18.

This sounds like an ideal target for northern observers.
You can plot the field using VSP:

and entering the coordinates given above.  This is about
7arcmin from SS Vul, a Mira that is not on the AAVSO
program.  We will create a sequence for the new nova
as soon as possible.
