Nova in SMC

B. Liller discovered a possible nova in SMC in the photographs taken at October 21.0857 and Oct. 21.0879. The magnitude was 12.1 mag on the photographs and no object brighter than 13.5 was seen before September 27 (vsnet-campaign-nova 635, 636). The object rapidly faded around October 23 and 24 (vsnet-campaign-nova 639, 641), and now the decline rate becomes more gradual (vsnet-campaign-nova 647, 652). B. Liller performed low-resolution spectroscopy and detected a strong narrow H-alpha emission line whose FWHM is 1525 (75) km/s (vsnet-campaign-nova 648, 651).
