PNV J00432946+4117137: recurrent nova (16.8 mag) in M31?

PNV J00432946+4117137 (NR:)

Half an hour ago a possible nova in M31 was reported as follows:

The reported position is only 0.3" from the He/Nn nova M31N 2007-10b (X-ray source CXO J004329.4+411713 = 3XMM J004329.4+411713). Recurrent nova?

Merry Christmas and clear skies
