Nova Sagittarius 2015 No. 2
On March 15, 2015 a bright Nova became apparent in the constellation Sagittarius. The Nova quickly brightened to magnitude 4.4 by March 21, 2015 and then sharply decreased. I snapped this shot of the Nova on the morning of March 23, 2015 just before pre-dawn at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
