A new (bright?) nova has been seen in the constellation of Ophiuchus. Onservations in the I band have it around magnitude 8, while in B it is around 14 and 12 in V. B and V magnitudes have faded a bit since discovery.Details of the evolution of the nova, and its discovery are here.
The nova is below the tail of Scorpius, while the field isn't TOO crowded, there will be a lot of stars to get confused with.The nova can been seen from both SSO and northern hemisphere scopes.
The location is R.A. 17 35 50.41 Dec. -29 34 23.8 (J 2000 coordinates)
The nova should be high enough to image from 1:00 am until astronomical twilight.
