Koji's List of Recent Galactic Novae

Now in Reverse Chronological Order

Last updated 2014 May 2

(Originally Created 2012 August 20)


I'm having a hard time keeping up with all these recent novae. The CBAT list of novae ends with V1723 Aql in 2010, and I haven't found any other lists that are up to date.

So here is my quick and dirty list of Galactic novae since 2008, also indicating whether the nova has been observed with Swift, if it's been observed with SMARTS, if there are spectra posted by Christian Buil on the astrosurf site, and if it is an E-nova target.

note that I have not included any novae in the Magellanic Clouds, M31, or any other external galaxies, in this list.
