Special Notice #24: Outburst of EG Aqr

November 8, 2006

Rod Stubbings has detected a bright outburst of the dwarf nova EG Aqr. This has been confirmed by Hiroyuki Maehara of the VSOLJ, at magnitude V=13.08. This object has not been in outburst in recent history (last outburst I see is 1951?), so monitoring and V-band time series are encouraged. Good charts and photometric sequence information is on the AAVSO website.
