A.W. Neely at NF/ Observatory reports a flare of BL Lac object 3C 279. The object which has a V resting magnitude of 17.75 has been followed with our .44 M reflector, Craf Cassini CCD, and Johnson V filter. The V magnitude on UD 11/20/93 was 16.3 +- .3, 12/10/93 14.8 +-.5, 12/18/93 15.04 +- .1. Due to the uncertainties of the magnitude (the object is still fairly low in the sky at dawn), the object may be reaching its peak. Additional visual magnitudes and observations at other wavelengths would be helpful.
