V841 Oph may be a multiple star eclipser?

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email webmaster@aavso.org

I just observed it back at its more "normal" low range of v=14.1, after spending a few weeks down near magnitude 15. This behavior makes it appear like it may be a multiple system with a third component of a substantially longer orbital period, causing about a magnitude depth eclipse of such duration.
