V1212 Tau outburst!

   Jeremy Shears (vis baavss-alert) has reported the detection of an outburst
of this SU UMa-type dwarf nova!

   The object was initially recognized as a "flare" like object near M45.
(cf. http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1983ATsir1269....7P )
The VSOLJ members started monitoring since 1987 suspecting that this
is a dwarf nova, rather than a flare star.

http://ooruri.kusastro.kyoto-u.ac.jp/mailarchive/vsnet-alert/9190 ,
this outburst turned out to be a superoutburst.
