>> Hi CBAers,
>> Rod Stubbings just reported an outburst of the recurrent nova V745
>> Scorpii, at V=9.0. The sky placement is mighty unfavorable (1752-33),
>> but these opportunities are mighty rare (only known outbursts in 1937
>> and 1989). Time-series photometry near the peak of a recurrent-nova
>> outburst (probably now) is especially rare.
