There's a report that U Gem just went into outburst.  If so, it would be a
great target for smallscopers to go for - you'll love the data at 10th
magnitude.  Watch for saturation!

Despite its ancient status, U Gem still presents us with puzzling
issues in outburst.  The timing and amplitude of its eclipse and hump will
be very helpful in figuring out the sequence of events up there.  But
don't be disappointed if they go away!  (THat carries information too)


(But I still think the bigscopers should do PQ Gem and DW UMa and
EC0511-79 and T Pyx!)
