    Sagittarius nova 2012

    Apparently a nova erupted in Sagittarius a couple of days ago. Is anyone keeping up in its brightness? (I'm in west Virginia and we've had rain and clouds since Saturday).

    This is the third nova in Sagittarius since 2008, according to a quick search. How many novas do we observe each year? Are three in one general location a common occurence? Thanks.
