Outburst of ASASSN-14CL (type UGWZ)

I have detected the star ASASSN-14CL, which is listed in VSX as a type UGWZ, in outburst at magnitude 13.3 (visual), on September 13.09028. I checked for minor planets in the area, and none were found.  The previous outburst occurred in June 2014 (see AAVSO special notice #386): https://www.aavso.org/aavso-special-notice-386

Will other observers please confirm my observation? Thanks!

Hi Carey, I did observe the

Hi Carey,

I did observe the field yesterday evening but had it fainter than 14.1... So it seems it has brightened considerably since.

Cheers,

Outburst of ASASSN-14cl

Hi Carey, Eddy

The CV gods are with us on this one. Amazingly I had a BRT image returned of the field this morning, and the object is indeed in outburst.  Details are   Sep 13.089 UT   13.786C      

I was observing last night, but the sky once again clouded over before I got around to Pegasus.

Another ASASSN star designated UGWZ a little too soon perhaps?

Normal outburst

From reports I'm seeing on VSNET (P. Dubovsky) it would appear that it's fading quite rapidly, and there are no reports of superhumps.  Looks like a normal outburst then, but always worth sticking with just in case a superoutburst is triggered.
