No spectroscopic confirmation of its nature was obtained, but the fact that no star brighter than magnitude 19 was known at that location implied the object was a nova. However, Schmeer’s discovery of the star in outburst again, at 12th magnitude, on April 20, 1992, enabled professional astronomers to get photometric and spectroscopic results showing that HV Vir 31 Cataclysmic Variables was in fact a dwarf nova, exhibiting many characteristics of the rare WZ Sge objects as well as the superhumps more usually associated with UGSU stars.
