T Pyx update

October 16, 2011

The figure below shows the last two years of visual and V band observations for the recurrent nova T Pyx:

The last 2 years of T Pyx observations (visual and V band)

Further to my posts earlier this year:

  1. Outburst of recurrent nova T Pyx
  2. T Pyx on the way back down
  3. T Pyx still rising (actually)

the current light curve shows that T Pyx has declined from its peak of around magnitude 6 to around magnitude 11, approximately 5 magnitudes in as many months:
