Possible outburst of ASASSN-17fp



Prof Tom Marsh just notified us about a possible second outburst of the AM CVn candidate ASASSN-17fp (RA = 18 08 51.10, Dec = -73 04 04.2); it seems to be brightening quickly, after dropping by 2.5mag only a week ago. Prof. Marsh requests observations of the source as frequently as possible. If you can reach far in the south, please add it to your target list!


An announcement of the star’s discovery was presented as an ATEL here:


Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Best wishes – clear skies,
