Abstract: The discovery of a flare star (R.A. (1950)=6/Suph43/Supm6/Sups.07, Decl.(1950)=–16°45'24") located about 6 arc min south of Sirius is reported. During photometric observations on the night of 13 January, 1982, using the 102 cm telescope at Kavalur, India, the star was seen to brighten by 2.55 mag. inV band over a duration of about 200 s. Observations on this object for a duration of about 10.5 hr spread over seven more nights indicate the star to be variable. The results of these observations are presented.
