    Seems like BX Monoceros is in outburst at Mag 8.8

    David Boyd

    BX Mon is reported to be an eclipsing symbiotic binary with an orbital period of ~3.5 years. It comprises a hot component, probably an A/F type star and a cool red giant. The light curve is complex but the recent increase in brightness is likely due to the hot component emerging from eclipse.
