AG Pegasi - now a classical symbiotic star?

An outburst of the symbiotic nova AG Peg was observed in the second half of 2015. On the base of long term observations and studies, the star is considered as the slowest nova ever observed. A comparison of recent and previous observations shows that the nova stage is finished and the outburst of AG Peg in 2015 is a classical symbiotic star outburst. Additionally, there is some evidence for similarities of the recent AG Peg high activity and the hot and cool outbursts observed in AG Dra.
