Hi CBAers,

Rod Stubbings just reported an outburst of the recurrent nova V745 
Scorpii, at V=9.0.  The sky placement is mighty unfavorable (1752-33), 
but these opportunities are mighty rare (only known outbursts in 1937 
and 1989). Time-series photometry near the peak of a recurrent-nova 
outburst (probably now) is especially rare.
