UBV photometry of Cygnus X-1 is reported from before, during, and after the 1980 June X-ray high state discovered by the Hakucho satellite. A darkening was recorded around orbital phase 0.25, also near phase 0.0, which persisted for over a month after the X-ray episode. The brightness around phase 0.75 remained normal. Light curves from preceding years are compared. Preliminary mention is also made of polarization changes during the high state.
