The location of Nova Centauri 2013

This chart shows the location of Nova Centauri 2013 (red circle) in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). All the stars easily seen with the naked eye on a dark clear night are shown. The nova erupted in late 2013 and was visible without a telescope. Careful study of the light from this nova has revealed the first traces of the element lithium ever found in a nova.
