AAVSO Special Notice #260: Retraction of Special Notice 259

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email webmaster@aavso.org

October 19, 2011: Further to AAVSO Special Notice #259, D. Fox notes in ATel #3692 that the bright transient in the M31 region reported by Ovcharov et al (ATel #3691) is coincident with the current position of minor planet Palma, currently transiting M31 at a magnitude of V=11.3. The object noted in Special Notice #259 is therefore unlikely to be stellar in nature. Special Notice #259 is therefore retracted.

This AAVSO Special Notice was prepared by M. Templeton.
