It's strange that nobody is started this subject here yet ?

This new strange object is quite easy to see, this morning I estimated a +12.3 magnitude, quite stable.

 

Some days ago I started the topic in the sketching forum, look here :

If you'r an earlybird try it!

After CTA102 and the last micro lense, it's just a small point like a faint star too, but this is really another exotic object.

A new secondary outburst is on the way:

March 17 - 4:00 UT I did a difficult visual estimation: mag +14 but the light curve is going up.

Clear sky!

I'm going to try to image this interesting tonight. It seems the AAVSO has been studying this object for at least a year.
