ASASSN-16jb 	17:50:45 	-25:58:37.2 	2016-08-19.14 	13.2

Very bright CV candidate caught very early and on the rise, very close to 
the Galactic center, so could also be a classical nova, V>17.2 on 
2016-08-17.04, V=13.3 on 2016-08-18.09, V=13.2 on 2016-08-19.14

If ASASSN-16jb is a Galactic classical nova, it should appear much
brighter in redder bands (R-band or I-band)
