Dear Dr. Green

We would like to report the following result about spectroscopy on 
possible nova Aql 2000 to IAU Circ.

Makoto Uemura and Taichi Kato

    M. Uemura and T. Kato, Kyoto University, report:  
"We obtained low-dispersion spectra (430-730 nm) of possible 
nova Aql 2000 on April 29.6 UT with the Okayama Astrophysical 
Observatory 1.88-m telescope.  H-alpha emission, whose FWHM 
is about 2300 km/s, is prominent and H-beta is also detected. 
The spectrum is similar to those of fast novae a few week after 
their maximum.  The balmer lines show no P-Cyg profiles.
These spectral features indicate the outbursting object is 
a fast nova at the slightly evolved stage."
