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.
this outburst turned out to be a superoutburst.
