Hi CBAers,

Here's a great new object for long, all-latirude-and-longitude 
observation.  Outburst confirmed by ZTF in ATel 14539.

AM CVn season is not yet over - we want to continue through May.  But we 
have very high-quality timings of the orbital signal (as well as the two 
superhumps, of course) - so the need for *long* nightly time series has 
passed.  I'd give the X-ray transient priority over HP Lib, too - 
although the latter is definitely of high interest.

Thanks, Patrick!

Hi Greg, David, Koji, and Joe,

As in 2017 and 2019, spring has begun, and CRTS J135716.8-093238
= SWIFT J1357.2-0933 goes into outburst (confirmation required).

Best wishes,
