Jeremy Shears

Atel 14838 from a team at Kyoto U report low resolution of RS Oph showing “Fe II, O I, and prominent Balmer lines. All of them listed here have a P Cygni profile. The velocity of the Hβ emission line is ∼ 2600 km/s. The profile and velocity indicate that this outburst is indeed a nova eruption, as is expected.”
