    I think it is at least the sixth this year.

    Have a look here for an up-to-date list. They often don’t get announced in ATELs.
    Currently TNS[/url] is the main database now but some discoverers still post on the TOCP.

    There tend to be several novae a month in M31 but a lot of people are looking for them so it is hard to claim a discovery. George Carey got AT2022eng recently along with Kamil and the Czech team.

    I see there are a few more candidates in TNS with 6 transients reported there in M31 this year though only one (2022cpe) has a confirming spectrum (with what seems a rather high velocity for a nova of FWHM 4000km/s)

    Ha, I see nick posted the same as I was typing 🙂
