Subject: [cvnet-outburst] Bright transient CSS100914:025353+233347

The CRTS survey found a bright transient (mag 13.4) a couple of nights ago (see <http://nesssi.cacr.caltech.edu/catalina/20100914/1009141230154112094.html>).  No progenitor is visible on earlier CSS images to mag. 20, nor on archival plates.  The large amplitude suggests an SU UMa type outburst.
