REPORT NOVA OF FIFTH MAGNITUDE IN CYGNUS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Astronomer Royal of Great Britain, Sir Frank Watson Dyson, has informed the College Observatory by cablegram of the discovery of a nova, or new star, on May 8 by Anderson. The initials of the discoverer are not given in the cablegram, but it is presumed that he is the Rev. T. D. Anderson, an English clergyman and amateur astronomer.

The cablegram was relayed to the University by the Bureau of Astronomical Telegrams at Copenhagen, Denmark.
