SS Cygni follow-up (Special Notice 279)

The membership database is currently undergoing upgrading/testing. Web functions that involve an interface with the member database (webobs, etc.) may experience intermittent problems. We hope to have this issue resolved within 24 hours (by 5pm Eastern Time on October 1st or 12:00 UT). Thank you for your patience.

Hi everyone,

We received another update, this time from Greg Sivakoff of U. Alberta on the JACPOT X-ray Binary jets team.  They were recently awarded target-of-opportunity time on the European VLBI Network (eEVN) for more SS Cygni follow-ups this month, and SS Cyg happily seems to be headed up today.  eEVN is scheduled to make observations on August 12.

Additional photometry (especially calibrated, transformed) and visual monitoring would be appreciated -- it would be great if this outbust could be covered start to finish.  Intensive time-series is not required.
