CK Vulpeculae, which erupted in AD 1670-71, was long considered to be a nova outburst; however, recent observations have required that alternative scenarios be considered. Long slit infrared spectroscopy of a forbidden line of iron reported here has revealed high line-of-sight velocities ($\sim\pm900$~km~s$^{-1}$) of the ansae at the tips of the bipolar lobes imaged in H$\alpha$ in 2010. The deprojected velocities of the tips are approximately $\pm2130$~km~s$^{-1}$ assuming the previously… Expand
