Brighter than recent outbursts in 1958, 1967 and 1985, this recurrent nova has been reported as bright as magnitude +4.5 so it's within naked-eye range from dark sky sites. The star may be found low to the southeast before dawn.

Coordinates:

Right ascension: 17h 50.2m
Declination: −06° 43'
(Epoch 2000.0)
