This is a strange one.
After it was first discovered, it was hanging around at Mag 17, and looked like
it would stay there.
Nobody bothered to take a spectra at this time.
Then Enrico Prosperi took an image of it, and found that it had brightened
by more than a full magnitude
It was eventually shown to be a type II.
We have a DSS Photometry reference image made by Odd Trondal.
