Further to ATel #7235, we report on continued observations of an outburst of the WZ Sge-type dwarf nova AL Comae Berenices in unfiltered CCD images with the 0.45-m ROTSE-IIIb telescope at McDonald Observatory, Texas. On 23 March, we observed a re-brightening which peaked at 15.0 mag on 27 March. The last detection occurred on 29 March at 16.0 mag, with a limiting magnitude of 17.0 on 30 March. Observations are ongoing and a current light curve is available at:
