New activity phase of V694 Mon = MWC 560

activity of V694 Mon = MWC 560

According to IAUC No. 6482, L. Georgiev reports that the symbiotic variable V694 Mon = MWC 560 is again exhibiting jet activity (velocity up to 3400 km/s). Available (rather few) photometric observations of the last year seem to show rather irregular, but apparently "high-state" variation. No visual observations of this season have been reported yet.
