MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 00h 42m 07.99s +40d 55m 01.1s on 2015-01-13.63235 UT. The OT unfiltered magnitude is 19.0m (limit 19.6m). The OT is seen in 4 images. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2011-08-24.98700 UT with unfiltered magnitude limit 21.1m.

Spectral observations are required.
