Nova M31N 2008-12a - 14.11.2021 at 20.30 Hankasalmi, Murtoinen Observation number 102325

Visibility I / V

Arto Oksanen, Jyväskylän Sirius

The recurring nova of the Andromeda Galaxy, M31N 2008-12a, has erupted again. This time the eruption was discovered by Japanese Itagaki this morning. The weather forecast looked inconsolable here in Finland, but the sky opened after 8pm and I got a picture of Nova.
