Dear friends,

Information from ATEL # 14185


During the ongoing All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN, Shappee et al. 2014, Kochanek et al. 2017), using data from the quadruple 14-cm "Cassius" telescope, we discovered a bright, new transient source, likely a classical nova, towards the Large Magellanic Cloud.
