Dear colleagues,

A rare outburst of WX Cet was caught by Rod Stubbings as below!
The last outburst observed in December 2004 was a superoutburst.
While the supercycle of this star has been estimated to be ~1000
days,  twice as long as the period since the last superoutburst,
the current outburst may be also a superoutburst.

The outburst light curve is rather peculiar for an SU UMa-type
dwarf nova, and seems to be close to that of SW UMa.  The
superhumps evolution observed in the 1998 outburst was very
interesting (Kato et al., 2001, PASJ, 53, 893).

Time-resolved photometry of WX Cet is encouraged to start
as soon as possible.  Note that V1141 Aql is also a good target
during the early-half night.

Best regards,
