After a relatively long plateau phase in outburst SS Cygni is starting to fade.  I hope to follow it as drops down to mag 12 over the next week.

At the time this image was taken AAVSO data give the V magnitude at ~9.5. Take a look at the AAVSO light curve generator for details: https://www.aavso.org/lcg
