HR Lyr

Gary Poyner

I’d urge visual observers to add this object to their programme during this active, high brightness state if you can get through mag 15.  I’ve been monitoring HR Lyr since the early 1990’s, and on June 29 this year I recorded it at 15.1 visual – the brightest I’ve ever seen it.  Now is an excellent opportunity to actually see this historical Nova for yourself.
