Z And in outburst

The prototypical Symbiotic Z And is in outburst at mag V ~ 9.2

We obtained spectra of the event (Joan Guarro, François Teyssier) with Echelle spectroscopes at R = 9000 to 11000

High iniozation lines (Raman OVI 6830, [Fe VII] ... have faded, expected behaviour for a classical symbiotic outburst

At date, we don not dectect features of jet emission in Balmer lines

CCD photometry of the evnet should be very welcome
