Just noticed a couple of positive observations of HL Cma at 9th magnitude. This does not seem reasonable, historically its never been brighter than 10th. Then, checking back a long way, there is a 2nd magnitude "visual validated" one back around 1986 too.
I think we need to look at a way to automatically verify/validate grossly erroneous data. A "polluted" DB does no one any good. Maybe a simple check against a variables known range in WebObs, and if a positive obs is entered outside of this range it sends an alert notice to the observer as well as HQ to check on it.
