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.
