Nova number 4 in Sagittarius

Martin Mobberley was able to capture this new nova in Sagittarius via on July 8th.
The field was only about 22 degrees high, even from New Mexico, at the time.

At Dec -27 it’s difficult (near impossible) to observe from the UK. It’s not really possible to estimate the brightness from this image as the star is saturated but visual observers were reporting a brightness of around mag. 8.
