Time stated is the midpoint of the capture and is UT. I hummed and hawed about posting this, but I figured that it might be good to show the different types of activity that are going on. So, something might be there - but it was definitely not bright when I looked!

* On the TNS page, it says the discovery mag was 19.75 (filter i-Sloan); this contrasts with the value on the Rochester page (of unknown origin).

I'd quite like to get a snap of AT 2017hat, but being in UMa this object is not high enough until a rather unpleasant morning hour!
