Another Nova pops up

A bright nova has been spotted in Sagittarius, V6595 Sgr. Discovered by Andrew Pearce of Western Australia on April 4th at magnitude 8.4, it had brightened to mag 7.9 by April 4th (the last date I can get any info for). For UK observers you will have to get up very early to see it as it won’t rise above the horizon until about 03:00 BST.
