DR UMa outburst!

   CRTS has detected an outburst of DR UMa.  This is the brightest outburst
in recent years (historically brightest?).

   The classification of this object has been unclear.  There is a radio
source close to the nominal position, and the variable has been suspected
to be an extragalatic one by some authors.  However, the current CRTS
position appears to be about 3 arcsec distant from the QSO position.
13 59 05.7492 +55 44 29.477

   Observations (including spectroscopic confirmation) during the current
outburst are encouraged!
