RX Cha : Superoutburst in March

R. Stubbings reported that the dwarf nova RX Cha experienced a relatively rare outburst (14.3mag) on March 13. Photometry by G. Garradd on the occasion of the 1998 Sep. outburst revealed the presence of superhumps, qualifying the object as a likely SU UMa star. However, the superhump period has not yet been determined precisely, nor further confirmatory observations were obtained (vsnet-campaign 813). The outburst continued at least until March 23 when the object was 15.3mag (vsnet-campaign-dn 584, 589, 607).
