The most recent two superoutbursts (JD24598001 and JD2459853) were observed by the TESS satellite giving a very short supercycle period of only 53 days. Analysis of the last 800 days of AAVSO light curve suggests a gradual shortening of the cycle period. I’ll try to write this up in time for the next VSSC.

If the current super outburst cycle is 52 days, we can expect the next superoutburst to start on JD2459905 or about November 20. Again thanks to the, at least, nine BAA members who are following this star.
