nova (new) close to U SCO?

Hi.

tonight 30 May 2019 during my monitoring of U Sco, I have seen what seems to be a new star (NOVA?) very close to U Sco, with perhaps as much as 4 to 6, the coordinates that my telescope gives me is AR 16 23 25.8 sgs, Dec -17 32 42 (not confirmed).

Discovery time: 09:46 hrs. 30 05 2019 UT.

Take images and upload them in a few moments.

Can someone confirm this object?

regards

PS: I do not have comparation stars on my U Sco lAAVSO Chart (X24419BDW).

Ceres

I saw something too, last night 29th, around mag 7.5 and thought it was a very bright nova. But it was Ceres.

FYI,

You can go to the JPL Solar System Dynamics page to determine if there is an asteroid or comit in your image.  A good idea for something new in a constellation along the ecliptic.  I saw Ceres in my image from last night and the night before.

Hi Barbara.

I made a mistake and learned something new¡

Thanks for sharing the web link  of the JLP, I did not know it.

I will be more careful in the next.

Best regards
