Possible outburst

The Dwarf Nova, BC UMa may be in outburst, according to a submission to the American Association of Variable Star Observers. The AAVSO has put out a special notice (including finder chart) requesting confirmation that the star has flared from a visual magnitude of less that 15.4 to one of around 11. The outburst was spotted on the 30th of September and it isn’t known how long it will last.
