ALEXIS has detected a potential transient in Telescope 2B (186 Angstroms, 66eV) at:
RA= (22 23 38.4) DEC=(61 9.96) (Epoch 2000) Error circle radius = 0.4 degrees (~90% confidence)
There was no evidence of the object in the co-aligned telescope 2A (93 eV). The source turn on appeared to start about 0 UT 8 Nov and was constant or slowly decaying at 18 UT 8 Nov which is the end of the most recent data dump from the satellite.
Follow up observations are encouraged
