Hi CBAers,

Anyone able to observe BK Lyn tonight?  Yesterday's data from Josch 
Hambsch and Joe Ulowetz suggested that this star may be going into 
outburst (again??).  This is fascinating to me because it's a novalike 
variable that has not previously shown outbursts - or at least outbursts 
that looked like dwarf-nova events.  One popped up early in this 
season's coverage - just following the star's dropping to the faintest 
state it has ever reached.  That's true this time too (meaning yesterday 
- a slim basis for making this statement... but ptovocative).
Excellent time-series photometry would be mighty nice!
