dc.description.abstractWe observed the 2020 February 4th outburst of the Centaur 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann, using the James Gregory Telescope in St Andrews/UK. The brightness of the comet increased by ∼3 mag in VRI within 1-2 days, followed by a more gradual incline. This was one of the largest documented outbursts of this object over the past few years, but is consistent with previously observed events.
