Josch Hambsch and I have been taking time-series data on this star for 
the last several days...and we have caught more than one eclipse.  
During this outburst the eclipse is about 2.5 magnitudes deep.

I have not analyzed the data for period, etc.  No obvious superhumping 
in the 3 - 4 hour light curves.  The eclipse lasts about 30 minutes.

As soon as Josch Hambsch gets the images and performs full analysis, we 
can tell you more.
