Anyone able to observe BK Lyn tonight? Yesterday's data from Josch
Hambsch and Joe Ulowetz suggested that this star may be going into
outburst (again??). This is fascinating to me because it's a novalike
variable that has not previously shown outbursts - or at least outbursts
that looked like dwarf-nova events. One popped up early in this
season's coverage - just following the star's dropping to the faintest
state it has ever reached. That's true this time too (meaning yesterday
- a slim basis for making this statement... but ptovocative).
Excellent time-series photometry would be mighty nice!
