f:id:kanataobslog:20100328195210p:image

The figure shows the light curve and the temporal variation of the object in the V band. The polarization degree of the object became high, about 24 %. The polarization degree of the object has been typically low compared with other High Polarized Quasars (HPQs), less than 10 % in our dense monitoring from 2008 to 2010. However, the object was in the high polarized state during JD 2455180. In current state, the object was similar in the high polarized state.
