Bright new nova or “new star” was discovered on 14. August in the constellation of the Delphinus. At the time of the discovery it was shinning at the magnitude of the +6.8 and brightened to magnitude +4.4 in few days after it was first seen in the sky. This easily puts it in the reach of the binoculars and for the observers under sufficiently dark sky it is observable by naked eyes.
This year’s maximum of the Perseids meteor shower was very favourable for observing. With no moon and clear weather we were able to photograph and visually observe meteors for several consecutive days. Here are some pictures of the best and brightest meteors caught.
Location of the supernova in galaxy NGC 7250 is marked with the cross on the picture. My telescopic visual estimated brightness was 12.9 magnitude.
