 ASASSN-19rx: eclipsing object?

  Josch Hambsch detected an eclipse-like fading on
July 28 (depth about 1.2 mag).  The rest of observations
suggest a wave with a period of 4-5 d.

  There was also a hint of eclipse during the 2015
outburst in the ASAS-SN data (2015 May 25),
and possibly on 2019 July 13.

  If this period and the eclipsing nature
are confirmed, this object is an eclipsing long-Porb
system like V1017 Sgr.  Observations (also at different
longitudes) are encouraged.
