Video of Nova V1405 Cas In late May 2021, Nova V1405 Cas, which was discovered already in March of the same year, became visible to the bare eye. We were able to catch a timelapse sequence even though our skies were moderately cloudy at that time. The sequence of images shows the newly erupted star, marked by red hashmarks, as seen through a rich field telescope with a field of view of 4 degrees.
Interestingly, the nova has experienced several more outbursts since we captured the video, which is a bit out of the ordinary.
