Keep after the bright new star in Cas! We're pressing ahead with it on
every front we can: X-ray, UV, spectroscopy, calibrated photometry, and
time-series photometry. For northerners, it's now a perfect target up
there in Cas, successfully shrugging off the challenges of the full Moon.
The nature of the star seems quite mysterious... a garden-variety A star
jumps 4 magnitudes, and still looks like a garden-variety A star!
Message on other stars later today...
BTW a V filter would be a nice choice for a time series. B would be
pretty good too.
