Correction to Alert Notice 668 on V1047 Cen

In AAVSO Alert Notice 668, it was omitted that the rebrightening of V1047 Cen (Nova Cen 2005) was discovered and reported by the Gaia team as Gaia19cfn on June 10, 2019. The target was subsequently observed by OGLE. I apologize sincerely for the omission of this discovery information.

Good observing,

Elizabeth O. Waagen

Recent rebrightening of about 1.1 mag

Hi Stella,

I observe this object every clear night (as you might be aware of). In the past three nights or so it rebrightened about 1.1 mag and is now at the brightest level since the outburst was detected. Gordon is also on it from Asutralia.
