[] Optical Transient in UGC 5460 : brightening

f:id:kanataobslog:20111008041121p:image

We started photometric observations of the optical transient in UGC 5460. This optical transient was spectroscopically classified as an eruption from luminous blue variable (LBV). The light curves indicate the brightening in V, Rc and Ic-band. If the nature of this transient is an eta Car-like object, the light curves may keep the luminous state for more than a year. We will continue the photometric observations of this object.
