The recurrent transient and accreting neutron star, X1744-361, has
begun the fourth outburst observed with RXTE (see ATel #1587). The
ASM data rate for this source is impeded by the angular proximity of
the Sun, but the outburst appears to have begun near MJD 55145.
The intensity seems to have leveled off quickly, and the
the average flux during the last week is 65(7) mCrab at 2-12 keV.
Followup observations are encouraged.
