    Excellent coverage here:
    http://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/home/Bright-Nova-in-Delphinus-219631281.html
    
    There's an excellent finder chart available there, and also a link to AAVSO reports indicating that the nova has brightened to at least magnitude 5.5.
    
    And on-topic, if you read the comments, there is a report of a bright flash the night before that may be a flaring satellite.
