We present the results of our polarimetric and spectropolarimetric monitoring of V838 Monocerotis, performed at Asiago and Crimean observatories during and after the multiple outbursts that occurred in January-March 2002. The polarization of the object is mainly due to interstellar polarization (P=2.48%). Intrinsic polarization up to 0.7% at 5000 A is present during the second maximum of the object (February 2002). This intrinsic component increases toward shorter wavelengths but our limiteddoi:10.1051/0004-6361:20031689 fatcat:o37dvzoj5bcihe6dz7no2qabmq
