MASTER OT J123647.53+382036.9 - PSN

MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 12h 36m 47.53s +38d 20m 36.9s on 2012-05-14.75340 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 19.3m (limit 19.8m). The OT is seen in 2 images. There is no minor planet at this place. There are two SDSS8 galaxies: J123647.49+382037.2 and J123647.57+382037.3 with rmag>20 at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2011-03-24.74927 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 20.0m.

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J142512.37+140403.2 - flare of the new UV Ceti star?

MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 14h 25m 12.37s +14d 04m 03.2s on 2012-05-14.69851 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 17.7m (limit 20.0m). The OT is seen in 3 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2011-02-25.82119 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.8m.

The object is identical to the star SDSS J142512.30+140403.2 with g=23.63(49), r=22.09(19), i=19.89(5), z=18.56(5). Nothing is present at this position in Palomar plates and in USNO-B1.0. There is no object at the OT position in AAVSO VSX, 2MASS, 1RXS and GALEX catalogs. No previous outbursts were found in Palomar/NEAT and CRTS databases.

Based on the red color in SDSS and amplitude of variability we suggest that MASTER OT J142512.37+140403.2 is a flare of the previously unknown variable star of UV Ceti type (flaring red dwarf).

Follow up observations are required. The discovery and reference images are available at http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/142512.37140403.2_1.png

MASTER OT J132403.36+071627.0 - ?

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 13h 24m 03.36s +07d 16m 27.0s on 2012-05-15.89201 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.7m (limit 19.7m). The OT is seen in 1 image. There is no minor planet at this place. There are no any galaxies within 10arcsec offset.

We have reference image without OT on 2011-01-13.11157 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 21.0.

Spectral observations are required.

MASTER OT J132422.40+055802.0 - ?

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 13h 24m 22.40s +05d 58m 02.0s on 2012-05-15.89201 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.5m (limit 19.7m). The OT is seen in 2 images. There are no minor planet and other objects at this place. We have reference image without OT on 2011-01-13.11402 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 21.0m.

Spectral observations are required.
