LMC V1341: new recurrent nova eruption!

LMC V1341 (NR+E)
https://www.aavso.org/vsx/index.php?view=detail.top&oid=236393
Eclipsing, orbital period 1.26432 d

I just noticed a new eruption of the recurrent nova LMC V1341 in recent ASAS-SN Sky Patrol (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S and Kochanek et al. 2017PASP..129j4502K) data:
https://asas-sn.osu.edu/light_curves/c8d6c909-61ba-4816-b417-73ca109955b1

Previous eruptions were recorded in 1968, 1990, 2002, 2010, and 2016.

Spectroscopy and time-resolved photometry are urgently required.

Clear skies,
Patrick
