    Nieuwe nova in Vulpecula

    Zie onderstaand bericht.

    Deze nova moet wel vroeg in de avond waargenomen worden, want hij staat dan al vrij laag. (25 graden hoogte om 19.00 uur MET).
    De locatie is 10 boogminuten ten westen van de open sterrenhoop NGC 6827, wat hem niet zo moeilijk te vinden maakt.

    gisteravond, nog voordat een front wolken eraan kwam, heb ik de nieuwe nova snel kunnen vinden :P . Helder is hij zeker nog, want ik schatte 'm op 7,6. Gemakkelijk 's avonds te vinden onder de Zwaan die nog hoog genoeg staat. Zal nog mooi kunnen gevolgd worden...
