Abstract: We have modeled the unusual orbital light curve of V1494 Aquilae (Nova Aquilae 1999 No.2) and found that such an unusual orbital light curve can be reproduced when there exist two-armed spiral shocks on the accretion disk. In particular, triple-wave patterns are naturally obtained. This result strongly suggests the existence of two-armed spiral shocks on the accretion disk in the late phase of the nova outburst.
