Among its purposes are to:
-Notify professional astronomers on activity of targets of opportunity
-Notify members of organizations or teams when the subject of an observing campaign becomes active
-Notify educators, students or individual observers when an object of particular interest to them is active
-To keep CVnet observers aware of current CV activity
New outbursts of a single object should include the name of the object and "in outburst" in the subject line (DX And in outburst) with the observation report in the body of the message.
Reports on activity of multiple objects should have the word "Activity" and the date yyyymmdd in the subject line (Activity 20050101) and the observation report in the body of the message.
Reports of rare or noteworthy outbursts, as well as objects that are targets of opportunity or the subject of ongoing campaigns should read ALERT: and the name of the object in outburst (ALERT: PQ And in outburst) with the observation report in the body of the message.
If you are unsure if the outburst is rare, noteworthy, a TOO or subject of a campaign simply use the normal outburst rule and the administrator or moderators will forward the Alert if needed.
