Abstract

 

The Kanatsu object, called Nova Puppis 2000 or V445 Pup, is a peculiar one. In the six months following its discovery in late December 2000 at photographic magnitude 8.6, its development was very slow-slow decline to visual magnitude ~10.0 in early February 2001, very brief significant brightening in March, a little decrease in late April, and stabilization at visual magnitude 10.3 near the end of June. Visual and CCD observations carried out by Latin-American Astronomical League (LIADA) and Brazilian Observational Network (REA) members indicate that the object does not appear to be a typical nova.
