 V3890 Sagittarii (NR+E)

Congratulations, Alfredo!
This should be the third recorded eruption, which I had expected
for about 2018 March. Previous eruptions occurred on 1962 June 2
and 1990 April 27.

In recent months I observed V3890 Sgr on almost every night
(weather and moonlight permitting). Unfortunately tonight the
sky has been overcast here, and the two previous evenings it
was too cloudy or hazy low above my southern horizon.

Recent ASAS-SN Sky Patrol (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S
and Kochanek et al. 2017PASP..129j4502K) data and light curve:
SGRV3890 20190827.048 <160g ASN
Failed observations on Aug. 27.76 UT?

Confirmation, spectroscopy, and multiband photometry are
urgently required.

Clear skies,
