By April 13 the brightness had faded to magnitude 13.0 visual after which PQ And was only seen at a deep minimum of magnitude 18-20C - until 2020.
On 2020 May 28.776 UT, Japanese observer Kenji Hirosawa (Aichi, Japan) recorded PQ And in outburst at 10.48cG using a 20cm telescope and a Canon X9 camera. Thirty two years and two months after the initial discovery.
At the time of discovery PQ And was thought to have been a Nova, but plate searches by G. Richter revealed previous outbursts in 1938 and 1967. PQ And was re-classified as type UGWZ.
A Nick James interview with Dave McAdam regarding the discovery of PQ And was filmed at the 1989 'The Astronomer' AGM, and can be seen on Martin Mobberly's YouTube channel.
