LL And has been in outburst for nearly a month, but it is now fading (Gary Poyner had at mag 16.7 last night, Oct 9.965).

However, some rarely outbursting dwarf novae sometimes exhibit rebrightenings (sometimes referred to as echo outbursts). These can occur a few days after the outburst is apparently over. And there can be more than one rebrightening.

Therefore please continue to observe this star. Nightly snapshot observations over the next week or two would be helpful.
