Latest Nova Scorpii News

Image Credit: Kasten Lindenmaier.

Nova Scorpii 2007 (V1280 Scorpii) has faded to around magnitude 4.5. A bit difficult under suburban skies to the unaided eye, but easy with binoculars. This spotters map will help, and my previous picture gives a good idea of the location as well.

For some northern hemipshere images see here. And tomorrow APOD will have a nova image.

UPDATE: The permalink to the APOD image is here. Auke Slotegraaf has a nice image of the Nova (next to a new nova) from South Africa

Hi :)
