PKS 0736+017.


Abstract (from CDS):

S. D. Clements, Florida Institute of Technology, writes that CCD observations during Dec. 5.281-5.549 UT with the SARA 0.9-m telescope on Kitt Peak show this flat-spectrum radio quasar to be in a high optical state, with mean V = 15.16 ± 0.01 and R = 14.61 ± 0.04 (in its quiescent state, V = 16.4 and R = 15.7). In addition, PKS 0736+017 was observed to exhibit microvariability throughout the night, varying by 0.33 mag in V and 0.43 mag in R. Last year, this source exhibited unusual oscillatory behavior while in its high state. Follow-up observations by observers at all wavelengths are encouraged.
