Forums Variable Stars Nova in Aries? Further info on this

Jeremy Shears

Further info on this transient continues to roll in. Isogai et al. report that the spectrum of this object suggests it is a dwarf nova of the WZ Sge type. They also observed early superhump-like modulations that occur in this type of object. If confirmed this would be the WZ Sge-type dwarf nova having the largest outburst amplitude ever seen.
