MASTER 185737.57+684156.9 discovery - Dwarf Nova flare, Ampl>3.2m

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 18h 57m 37.57s +68d 41m 56.9s on 2015-04-28.96310 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 18.4m (limit 19.2m).

The OT is seen in 3 images on 2015-04-28(18.4m) and on 3 images on 2015-04-26(18.3m). There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference image without OT on 2010-05-13.93987 UT with 20.6 unfiltered magnitude limit, and 300 reference images since 2009 in MASTER-Kislovodsk and MASTER-Tunka databases.
CRTS covered this area, but didn't see any sources befor.

Spectral observations are required.

The discovery and reference images are available at:http://master.sai.msu.ru/static/OT/185737.57684156.9_3.png
