(from vsnet-alert 316, Roussel-Dupre)
ALEXIS has detected a potential transient in Telescope 2A (130 Angstroms, 93eV) at:
RA= (10 58 43.78)
DEC=(+00 40 25.4)
Error circle radius = 0.5 degrees (~90% confidence)
There was no evidence of the object in the co-aligned telescope 2B (66 eV). The source turn on appeared to start about 13 UT 24 Jan.
Simbad only show 14 sources in this direction, l=252, b=+52, which are F, K stars.
Groundbased observations made at this time will aid in the identification of the optical counterpart.
