nm331_i.jpg Discovered by Odd Trondal. After finding a nova in M31, Odd tried to search for one in M33. M33 is a much smaller and younger galaxy that M31, so his chances of success were not that good. The last nova found in M33 was back in 1970 (M33 V468). However... We have a Photometry reference image for this section of M33 generated by Odd Trondal. A full photometry reference image for this galaxy is here.
