About this image

Comparison of two images of V347 Aurigae, the left hand one taken on 2021 October 30 and the right hand one taken on 2021 November 14. In between the two images V347 underwent an outburst of several magnitudes peaking around 6th November and is now heading back to normal. There does appear to be some brightening of the nebulosity around V347 Aur in the later image.
