Richard, Looks like you may have captured the start of the superoutburst. At the same time Steve Johnson made very similar observations reported to AAVSO.
A little later (UTC 2022/05/12 03:36:29 JD 2459711.65 ), using AAVSOnet New Mexico, I got a V magnitude of 13.1 which is in superoutburst territory. So it will probably remain bright for the next 5-10 days. If the superoutburst has started, it is 50 days from the last start – which is typical.
