A. Smith, Department of Physics, University of Leicester, reports: "The Ariel 5 sky survey has observed an x-ray flare apparently coincident with 3U 0833-45. The 2.4-18 keV intensity rose to a peak of 16.5 +/- 2 cts/s on 1976 July 23.821 UT, a three-fold increase over the normal level. The event lasted about 12 hours. Although a field source transient cannot be ruled out, the number of such events makes this unlikely."
