The ASAS-SN survey showed CP Eri in outburst yesterday, at 16.0. We've
obbserved one of these about 10 years ago - and it's been a long wait!
This is an AM CVn star, a short-period helium CV, and it's (almost) sure
to display prominent superhumps. Very likely superoutoutburst, and
decently placed at 03h 10m 32.7s -09d 45m 06s.
And speaking of super, a super-high-priority target.
