MASTER OT J111815.56-254023.0 - bright Dwarf Nova flare
MASTER-SAAO auto-detection system (
Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 11h 18m 15.56s -25d 40m 23.0s on 2015-03-09.84955 UT.
The OT unfiltered magnitude is 16.1m (the limit is 19.4m).
There are 5 images with OT at this night. We have reference image without OT on 2015-01-16.96038 UT with 19.9 unfiltered magnitude limit.
This OT is identified with The Initial Gaia Source List (IGSL) (Smart, 2013) source with B=19.261, R=19.380.
The discovery and reference images are available at : http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/111815.56-254023.0.png
Spectral observations are required.
