V1141 Aql : Superoutburst with a precursor in July

As reported by M. Reszelski on July 12, the SU UMa-type dwarf nova V1141 Aql experienced an outburst at 15.3mag. The last likely superoutburst was reported in 2000 August-September (vsnet-campaign 994). The Kyoto team found the object was rapidly faded on July 13 and 14 (vsnet-campaign-dn 984). The object re-brightened on July 18 as shown in the Kyoto team observation. This implies that the outburst of July 12-13 is very likely a precursor to a superoutburst (vsnet-campaign 1001). R. Ishioka reported that possible short-term modulations were seen in the light curve on July 19 (vsnet-campaign 1002). The superoutburst continued until around July 27 (vsnet-campaign-dn 1014).
