The object is about 18.2m at minimum. There are several previous
detections by MASTER-Amur and MASTER-Tunka up to 15.1m on
2011-08-08.615 UT.

Object IDs:
USNO-B1.0 1240-0472261 (21 07 36.725 +34 02 28.07 B1=19.13 R1=17.61
B2=18.43 R2=18.04 I=17.40)
USNO-A2.0 1200-17148414 (21 07 36.74 +34 02 28.0 R=17.9 B=18.5)
2MASS 21073673+3402280 (J=15.74+/-0.07 H=15.43+/-0.11 K=15.93+/-0.27)

The object was detected in a high state on many archival MASTER
images. It is possible that MASTER OT J210736.73+340227.1 is a
cataclysmic variable of VY Scl or AM Her type (anti-nova or polar).
Less likely it is a very frequent outburster.
