About this image

As I lose the field for V1112 Per in the May evening sky, I thought it was a good time to upload the light curve from discovery on Nov 25, 2020.  

The Nova has shown some colour changes, as is apparent from the difference between CV, V and visual data.  

From February 2021 the Nova has been gradually rising in brightness, and by the end of April had risen by two magnitudes to reach it's January 2021 level whilst on it's decline.  I'll be keen to pick the field up again as soon as possible in the Summer morning sky to see what further surprises this Nova may have for us.
