Forums Variable Stars Nova Vul 2021 Brightening

Gary Poyner

This Nova (V606 Vul) is brightening once again.  Looking at the VSS database, it can be seen that the Nova has been slowly rising from mid December (Mag 18.9V on Dec 6), through January where Nick James was able to follow it to mag 14.76CG by Jan 31.   I’ve just measured an image taken by SLOOH this morning (Feb 23) at mag 14.6C.   

If you can get to the field at this time of year, please report your observations to the VSS.
