Does anyone observe this NL star? Its range in VSX is given as 131-141. It has been recorded at 126-144 over the past six years. My last estimate on 24 May was 142. But tonight is was 151. I have never seen it this low before. I would appreciate someone checking it for me to confirm my observation. Thank you

Hi Stephen,

Your observation is confirmed by the light curve from ASAS-SN: https://asas-sn.osu.edu/light_curve/0bf2b69c-649d-4f02-bebe-2e7d4cfb5650.

Thank you, Patrick. I see from that graph that it had a similar decline around JD 56800 so it's not a one-off event. It was hard to estimate as I had to extrapolate from the faintest comp star which is 147. I have requested fainter comp stars.
