1E 1719.1-1946: a new member of SU UMa stars?
P. Schmeer reported the second ever recorded outburst (15 mag) of this
object on April 19 (vsnet-alert 4641).
He subsequently reported that it was still bright on April 20.435 UT,
and suggested it is at a supermaximum. The only previously observed
outburst was detected by him on a 1999 October 11 (vsnet-alert 3571), but contrary to the brightening on 2000
April, this previous one was very short (
vsnet-alert 4651). T. Vanmunster performed a time-series photometry
on April 19/20. His light curve supports P. Schmerr's suggestion as
the curve shows part of (likely) a superhump - amplitude at least 0.3 mag.
The time basis of the observation was too short to derive any period
