      It seems a good many novae have been put in the variable-star
      category by astronomers.

      CP Lacertae hit magnitude +2.1 in 1936, and CP Puppis hit magnitude
      +0.3 in 1942.

      Here's a Wikipedia page on novae that includes a list of novae that
      attained seventh magnitude and up since 1891, more objects for my
      fixed-stars lists (probably the novae page, too, once I can get a
      handle on their astrological influence).

      And this is the Wikipedia supernova page.
