There have been a couple more amateur spectra of this object.

Another spectrum. This one from Christian Buil

http://www.astrosurf.com/buil/transient/_pnvj19023335+0315190_20131030_751_cbuil.png

showing H alpha and a weak 6251A in emission and the red continuum but no obvious molecular bands.

Any news on what this is?

PNV J19023335+0315190 is fading rapidly, falling by 0.85 mag (V filter) over the last two days.  Latest reading is 16.576 (V) on 2013 Nov. 02.14899

Looks like it will be cloudy tonight (Nov. 3 UT) in my area. Not many people observing this object, anyone care to follow-up?

I measured V= 16.39 last night 2.4/11/13. UT

Still bright in I though I = 12.39
