Nova Sagittarii 2015 No. 2 Rebrightens (a bit)
Light curve of Nova Sagittarii 2015 No. 2. It has faded then rebrightened, and may be fading again
Following Nova Sagittarii 2015 No. 2 has been a bit frustration as there have only been a few days without cloud. Up the top is a series of 3 images from the 21st, 24th and 28.
On the 21st it was just visible to the uniaded eye with averted vision, and quite clear in binoculars, on the 24th it was no longer unaided eye visible, in binoculars it was obvious, but no longer outstanding. On the 28th it was again just visible to the unaided eye with averted vision, and again brighter in binoculars.
This nova is well worth extended follow up, and may bounce around in brightness like Nova Cent 2013 and Nova Delphinus 2013.
