AAVSO Special Notice

The AAVSO Special Notice is no longer published as of July 31, 2017. Content that would have been distributed via Special Notices is being distributed via AAVSO Alert Notices and posts to the AAVSO online discussion forums for Campaign & Observation Reports, Time Sensitive Reports, and/or other relevant forums.

Special Notices included announcements on interesting and/or rare stellar activity that did not involve new coordinated campaigns or may not risen to the level of importance of an Alert Notice. The goal was for the Special Notice to be quick and brief. Should the announcement have warranted further attention, it may have been followed by an Alert Notice.

A listing of all Special Notices has been incorporated into the webpage AAVSO Alert Notices for Observing Campaigns and Discoveries.
