Special Notice #32: Possible Nova in Centaurus [V1065 Cen]

January 24, 2007

William Liller, Vina del Mar, Chile, reports his discovery of a possible nova; confirmation and spectra are needed. According to Bill, "its approximate magnitude is 8.2. It appears on two photos taken near Jan 23.354 UT with Kodak TP film, an orange filter and an 85mm lens. Nothing brighter than magnitude 11.5 was seen at this position on Jan 15.36. Nothing seen at this position on the Real Sky Digitized Southern Sky Survey."

Coordinates (from Liller): R.A. = 11h 43.2m Dec. = -58d 03' (2000)

Special Notice #26: Possible Minor Outburst of 0324+43 GK Persei

December 15, 2006

Coordinates: 03:31:11.82 +43:54:16.8 (2000.0)

Recent observations of the old nova intermediate polar magnetic catclysmic variable GK Per (Nova Per 1901) show the star brighter than minimum. However, it is too early to tell if an outburst is underway.

1817-23 NOVA SAGITTARII 1992 NO. 3

Alert Notice 180: 2337+56 Nova Cassiopeiae 1993 [V705 Cas] AND Special request to monitor dwarf novae

February 8, 1994

2337+56 NOVA CASSIOPEIAE 1993  [V705 Cas]

This bright nova, discovered on December 7.47 UT by Syuichi Nakano of Japan at photographic magnitude 6.5 (see AAVSO Notice 179), has been very well monitored by observers worldwide. Its optical light curve, created from observations reported to the AAVSO, indicates it brightened to about visual magnitude 5.7 by mid·Oecember, and then has slowly declined to magnitude 8.4 by February 7, with fluctuations as much as 1 magnitude in amplitude.
