Brand new Nova in Delphinus!

A Nova (new star) was discovered on 14 August 2013 by a Japanese amateur astrologer.

The Nova sits in the constellation of Delphinus, and stargazers familiar with the Summer Triangle should be able to locate between Deneb and Altair, just to the left of the pointer of Saggita.

Its location in Delphinus is prompting astrologers to refer to it as Delphini Nova 2013. 

It is of a magnitude bright enough for it to be seen by the naked eye in extremely clear night skies, but easily viewable through a typical set of binoculars or through a small telescope.

Grab your binoculars tonight and go take a look!
