A dwarf nova, LL Lyr, is reported to be undergoing an outburst by E. Broens on Jan. 31.216 UT at a magnitude of mv=13.2 (vsnet-obs 2015). T. Vanmunster reports the object was fainter than 13.8 on Jan. 31.208 (vsnet-obs 2017).
(vsnet-obs 2016, E. Broens )
I noticed that the comparison star near LL Lyr, labeled 136 on the AAVSO chart (=GSC 3105 1376) was clearly fainter than normal.
I estimated the star at magnitude 14.1 on Jan. 31.217 (comp stars 13.8-14.3).
Did someone noticed this too?
