Complete ASAS-SN Sky Patrol (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S and Kochanek et al. 2017PASP..129j4502K) light curve and data: https://asas-sn.osu.edu/light_curves/d6c23c06-2c52-45a8-a9dd-42fd57eb7609

It is still unclear whether the Vmag. 14.7 star Gaia DR2 4559101020133387648 or a very close companion is the outbursting object.

Spectroscopy, time-resolved as well as multiband photometry, and further astrometry are urgently required.

Clear skies,
Patrick
