The WZ Sge-type dwarf nova EG Cancri has been reported in outburst by Ian Miller (Swansea, Wales).  He reported EG Cnc at m(CV) = 14.3 on 2009 October 12.138 (JD 2455116.638).  Subsequent unfiltered time series observations by Miller reported to the AAVSO confirm EG Cnc at around magnitude 14.3; the star declined by approximately 0.1 magnitudes during the two-hour span of the time series.  Observations of EG Cnc are urgently requested at this time, including visual estimates, CCD photometry, and CCD time-series observations.
