Follow-up Fermi LAT Detection of Renewed Activity from B2 2308+34 (S.Buson, Atel #5477) MASTER-Tunka auto-detection system discovered strong brightening source at (RA, Dec) = 23h 11m 05.30s +34d 25m 11.3s on 2013-10-18.58796 UT. The B2 2308+34 unfiltered magnitude is 15.4 (limit 17.4m). One magnitude more than historical maximum during Catalina observations (http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/J231105+342511-CRTS_LC.gif).

The OT is seen in 20 images.

We have reference image without OT on 2011-08-01.75066 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 19.9m.

The discovery and reference images are available at: http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/231105.30342511.3.png
