November 10, 2014: Astronomer's Telegram (ATel) #6676 (B.J. Shappee et al. 2014) notes the discovery of ASASSN-14jv, a bright optical transient found at V=11.3 on 2014 November 9.19 (JD 2456970.69). This object is suspected to be a cataclysmic variable of the WZ Sge subtype. Shappee et al. note that the source is less than one arcsecond away from a g=19.1 magnitude source in the Kepler Input Catalog, suggesting a large amplitude typical of UGWZ stars.
December 6, 2013: Observer Carlo Gualdoni reports via the cvnet-outburst mailing list that the WZ Sge-type dwarf nova AL Comae is in outburst, with a magnitude of V=12.74 on 2013 December 6.185 (JD 2456633.1185). Gary Poyner notes on the BAAVSS mailing list that this is the first observed outburst of AL Com since October 2007. Both visual observations and CCD time series are encouraged.
May 16, 2008 : Dr. Steve Howell (NOAO) requests monitoring of a subset of the known and suspected tremendous outburst amplitude dwarf novae (TOADs) in support of Spitzer Space Telescope observations of these objects. Observers are asked to increase their monitoring of the objects in the table below in support of this campaign. We note that several of these objects -- notably the WZ Sge stars WZ Sge, GW Lib, and V455 And -- are not expected to superoutburst during the next year, but observations are still encouraged in case they exhibit unexpected behavior.
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.
