    This recurrent nova in the Andromeda galaxy is a very unusual object in that it goes into outburst roughly every 11 to 12 months. The latest outburst was noted earlier today at 20211114.378 when it was magnitude 18.2 unfiltered. If history is a guide it should be accessible to amateur imagers for a few more days. It is a shame that my observatory is out of action or I would be running photometry tonight.
