TW Vul rare outburst

There's nothing particularly special about this star that's simply listed as type "UG" in VSX, but it is rather shy about having outbursts: about one per year based on AAVSO data.  I measured it at v=13.38 last night (JD 57364.430) and even brighter tonight at v=12.91 (JD=567365.498). It's already too low for me to get any further observations, and it's nearly out of season, but time series might be interesting.
