AK Cnc: Superoutburst in 2000 February

As reported by H. McGee and E. Muyllaert, the SU UMa-type dwarf nova AK Cnc experienced a relatively bright outburst at 13.5mag on February 10. The latest likely superoutburst of AK Cnc was observed in 1999 March, which was preceded by a precursor 10 days before (vsnet-alert 4170, vsnet-alert 4174). The brightness showed no significant fading on February 11 and 12, which strongly indicates that outburst is a superoutburst (vsnet-alert 4206).
