Follow-up reports:

Spectroscopy, time-resolved photometry, and precise astrometry are urgently required.

Clear skies,

Finally on the Northern Sky

Finally a bright transient on the Northern Sky.

Until ~22 UT the sky was more-or-less clear in Budapest, but now it overcast :(
I hope someone on other part of the planet can make follow-up observations soon.

Clear skies,

Robert

Thanks for the alert, I've just acquired a spectrum in the morning:

No Balmer visible out of noise, featureless and bluish.

EDIT: not featureless.

See also the ARAS forum update, probably a dwarf nova.
