Forums Variable Stars New Dwarf Nova in Gemini Slowly fading

Gary Poyner

Eleven days into the outburst, this dwarf nova of the relatively rare type UGWZ is still fairly bright in the evening sky after fading by just over two magnitudes since discovery, and remains worthy of continued observation – visual, single image or time series.

My own light curve consiting of visual observations from Birmingham and CCD images from COAST and SLOOH is shown below.
