Just when I thought I’ve seen it all, yet another surprise from CG Dra. The data is noisy, as it’s getting low on the sky, slightly over 30 degrees at midnight, with the Moon visible early in the night and clouds interfering throughout. The profile appears to be U/L/PEH – U-shaped, low orbital hump, post-egress hump (PEH), however, PEH appears to be very wide, lasting about half of cycle. Almost like an anti-phase orbital hump. I don’t remember seeing this profile before. Note, also, a single spike to almost 15.6 magnitude.
