Hi CBAers,

IY UMa (=Tmz V85) has gone into outburst, although it might just be a
normal one.  We're covering it with two telescopes from MDM Observatory in
Arizona, and additional coverage is heartily encouraged!  XTE J1118+480 is
continuing to stay bright, and therefore IY can afford to steal a bit of
time from it, for the moment at least.  We should know in just a few days
whether it is indeed a normal outburst of IY UMa.  It's at about 14th mag
now, and there's a chart at the web site (www.cbastro.org).
