We report a NIR flare of the high redshift (z=1.254) FBQSJ102311.5+394815, cross correlated with the gamma-ray source 1FGLJ1023.6+3937 and the radio source 4C+40.25. On March 18th,2016 (MJD 2457465.82) We found this source with a flux corresponding to H = 14.900 +/- 0.03, while on MJD 2457375.01 had H = 15.792 +/- 0.05. Hence it has had an increment of 0.9mag in this lapse. Apparently, the source has been monotonically increasing since MJD 2455603, when it was H = 16.922 +/- 0.08. Our observations are carried out with the 2.1m telescope of the Guillermo Haro Observatory operated by the National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (Mexico), equipped with the instrument CANICA a NIR camera. We strongly encourage further multiwavelength coverage.
