N CMa 2018 Rebrightening?

Earlier this evening I measured N CMa 2018 at 10.45V -- almost as bright as its apparent peak on 3-29-2018.  BVRI data submitted.

For some reason LCG only plots the newest points for me when I select calendar date, not Julian date(?).  Interesting behavior!

LCG1 says it doesn't exist.

LCG2 says no data

The correct name is ´N CMA

The correct name is ´N CMA 2018´

This night my visual estimation was around +10.6 at 19:33 UTC.

That's because those are the only observations in the database. Go to WEBOBS and you will see what I mean. The first observation is 24 March.

Shows up fine now.  Sometimes it seems to take a while for observations to be displayed by LCG;  I don't know that data pipeline.

There's a chance I might be able to measure this system again this evening -- will be interesting to see if we're seeing a long, fluctuating peak, or just a lump on the way down.

Clear skies,
