Athough it has been trending slightly fainter lately, the most recent observation of MV Lyrae could indicate it is about to enter one of its well-documented, but rare, fading episodes.

 MV LYR              2013 Jul. 15.11740     13.5         Vis.            BTY

Please keep an eye on this one to confirm if this is so, and if it is, be sure to add MV Lyr to your nightly vigil.

Hello Mike

Thanks for pointing this out.  I am on ACK starting today.  May get to observe Wed.  Weather permitting.  Have been watching for a couple of weeks or more.  Weather here poor.
