And a Possible NOVA Too.

Chart of location of possible nova Cygni, stars down to magnitude 7 shown. Click to enlarge.

A possible nova has been recorded in Cygnus. At a reported magnitude of 7, it is within easy reach of binoculars and small telescopes. Its at
RA 20h 28 min 12.52 sec dec + 41 deg 48 min 36.5 sec N. AAVSO is currently down, so I don't know if there is follow up on this.

The nova can't be seen from the southern hemisphere, and in the northern hemisphere you will have to wait for migdnight or later for a good view of it
