Hi, just noticed this from the alert. The obs look pretty concordant and suggest an incredibly fast rise of almost a magnitude in a matter of minutes. What a star this is!!

Actually, it's STILL not possible to upload files, so I can't show you what I was going to. Someone, anyone... sort this out NOW! (no apologies for capitals) I already have in my code library (from previous employment) the wherewithal to screen for security purposes which I will freely make available, but surely that isn't necessary.

So, we'll have to do it with words rather than the screen shot I intended:
Round about June 13.9, var at ~11.0m
June 14.0, var around 10.3!
(several observers on both occasions)
