a quasar brightens

It seems there is a quasar in outburst. CTA 102 or 4C 11.69 is a quasar in Pegasus which usually glows at about magnitude 17. Currently reports are showing it in the mag 12 to 13 range. The AAVSO has computed a light curve. It'd be interesting to try and spot it... I added it to my SkyTools list.
