Visible without binoculars but only just through the light pollution from Newport and Cardiff. Patchy cloud and nova was going behind trees when a patch cleared sufficiently for me to get an observation in. Then I had to balance on top of a wall holding my 20×80’s, our elderly neighbour seemed surprised! After 5 years living here she hasn’t got used to an amateur astronomer living next door. I’ll upload to database later.

Nice to see another bright Nova appear
