I'm sure you guys all know the drill by now... but don't assume that 
someone else will do it, or that "it's too late".  Each of these HST 
observations is only permitted by NASA if it's demonstrated that the 
star is in quiescence.  Send the magnitude right away to Boris.

And for the observation itself, in case it happens, it's very useful to 
know the simultaneous visual magnitude.  That solitary point can often 
have great weight in fitting the flux distribution (since the spectra 
themselves are in the UV).

Dear All,

Thanks so much!
