DG CVn flare!

We received AAVSO email about new GRB at RA: 202.928d {+13h 31m 43s} (J2000), Dec: +29.258d {+29d 15' 30"} (J2000) and moved the scope to that field aprox. 15 min after the trigger. We observed the field for 24 minutes, than clouds moved in and after they were gone, we continued to shoot images (and still are). We detected fading of one field star from brightening. Included light curve is a flare fading with quite large amplitude. Selected star is DG CVn (known flare star) in close solar vicinity.
