Extract

The International Ultraviolet Explorer was used to obtain spectra at both 7 Å and 0.2 Å resolution of the recurrent nova WZ Sagittae during its 1978 outburst. The first spectra were obtained on 1978 Dec 1.8 UT, approximately 0.7 days after discovery. The decay from outburst was followed until 1979 Jan 1, after which it was too near the Sun to be observed. A post-outburst spectrum was obtained on 1979 July 11. In this paper, preliminary results from the analysis of the low resolution spectra are discussed. These observations will be used to support the similarity between WZ Sge and dwarf novae and to test accretion disk models.
