Image Details:

Nova Her 2021 burst into view on June 12th and quickly because almost naked eye visible at mag 6.4 but faded quickly thereafter and now on June 16th it was mag 9.7 and getting fainter. A fast nova. I missed getting the bright outburst due to clouds so as this image shows only the fading star remains.
