MASTER OT J045804.40+212306.8

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

It appears MASTER OT J045804.40+212306.8 is not a CV after all. It is a Jovian satellite! John Greaves must have had quite a smile on his face when he informed the MASTER team of this error. They quickly published a retraction on ATEL.

"MASTER OT J045804.40+212306.8 (ATel #4428) is the Jovian satellite J6 Himalia (John Greaves, private communication). We are very sorry."

I'm quite disappointed to realize not everything posted to the Internet is true...
