Dear CBAers,

Not the greatest seasonal timing, but this could be a very rewarding 
star!  First outburst ever observed.


  The Catalina Real-time Transient Survey detected an outburst of
SDSS J220553.98+115553.7 (CSS110520:220554+115554).

1105201121174113562 2011-05-20T11:03:54 2011-05-20T10:59:25 22 05 53.98 
+11 55 53.8 14.46 14.46 n/a 14.34 

  This object has an orbital period of 82.825 min (Southworth et al. 2008,
MNRAS, 388, 709). The object is a good candidate for an SU UMa (or WZ Sge)
type dwarf nova. Follow-up observations are encouraged.
