Dear CBAers,

This object is *way* out of season - but it's likely to be a very 
important star, as a very rare outburster.  If we can blend together a 
few time-series (the longer the better)from separate longitudes, the 
rewards might be considerable!

Dear All,

I confirm the presence of a 15-mag source there. The object is just
rising here in Italy, will try to cover it for a while.
