   The SDSS colors suggest a short period (<0.06 d).
There was one 14 mag detection in CRTS, but it may have
been a noise.
It appears that some of Japanese nova searchers do not
understand what PNV means.  It is confusing (and sometimes
may cause a delay in follow-up time-series photometry)
to designate apparent non-novae as PNV.
