A new, bright Nova has just been observed in Orion.

Alert Notice 676: Nova in Orion: N Ori 2019 = PNV J06095740+1212255
August 14, 2019

AAVSO Forum threads (scroll to the bottom of a thread for latest posts):
- Novae: https://www.aavso.or...va-94-mag-orion
- Time Sensitive Alerts: https://www.aavso.or...-94-mag-orion-0

Event:  Nova in Orion: N Ori 2019 = PNV J06095740+1212255

Discovered by: Shigehisa Fujikawa (Kan'onji, Kagawa, Japan)

Discovery magnitude: 9.4 unfiltered CCD (using a Minolta F 3.5 f 120mm lens, limiting mag 13.5)

Discovery date: 2019 August 07.7984 UT

Coordinates (2000.0): R.A. 06 09 57.45   Decl. +12 12 25.2  (from VSX)

Spectra: Spectroscopy obtained by E. Aydi et al. (ATel #13027) on 2019 August 14.44 UT using the Goodman spectrograph on the SOAR telescope indicates that N Ori 2019 is a very fast expanding classical He/N nova, possibly in the post-maximum phase.

Observing recommendations: Observations of all types (visual, CCD, DSLR, PEP, spectroscopy) and multiple bands as instrumentation permits are strongly encouraged as the nova evolves.

Finally was able to observe this rapidly fading Nova (V2860 Ori).It was first discovered 8/14 at mag 9.4 as of 8/17 V2860 has faded to mag 12.4. I imaged V2860 using the Slooh Observatory in Chile.

I've been following V2860 Ori, when weather permits, as it gradually fades. V2860 seems to have leveled off just below 13th magnitude. Here's the latest lightcurve of this Nova.

My latest observation of V2860 Ori (9/10/19) puts the nova at mag 14.0, still slowly fading.
