MASTER OT J021211.74+475602.7 - the discovery of bright possible dwarf nova outburst (13.6m, Ampl>3m)

MASTER-Kislovodsk auto-detection system ( Lipunov et al., Advances in Astronomy, MASTER Global Robotic Net, 2010 ) discovered OT source at (RA, Dec) = 02h 12m 11.74s +47d 56m 02.7s on 2015-07-31.92043 UT.

The OT unfiltered magnitude is 13.6m (the limit is 17.5m). There are 3 images with m_OT=13.6. There is no minor planet at this place.

We have reference images with OT in quiet state on 2009-10-12.044UT with R=16.6, on 2010-07-28.927UT with unfiltered m=16.7, on 2011-10-30.901UT with unfiltered m=16.6, on 2012-09-19.946UT with m=16.5, on 2013-11-11.802UT with m=16.6, on 2014-08-22.980UT with m=16.5 . There is USNO-B1 star with B1=17.53,R1=16.23,B2=17.96,R2=16.75,I=15.82. So we can suggest the dwarf nova outburst with Ampl>3m

Spectral observations are required.
