V1369 Centauri naked eye glimpses this morning

Gaps in the clouds from my suburban location at around 4:54 am today again provided glimpses of the nova, still visible to the naked eye. I was only able to briefly see two stars for comparison purposes but not both at the same time: v Cen (4.33 with a small variability of 0.01) and beta Musca (3.5). It was certainly closer to v Cen than beta Musca, perhaps around magnitude 4.0 or 4.1 but again, this observation is very uncertain and not good enough to submit to the AAVSO International Database.

Reports from others indicate that V1369 Cen continues to fade.
