Extra Note - July 1, 2010

About source reported in ATel #2703

Following the announcement of a NIR flaring activity of the
QSO CGRaBS J1700+6830 on June 12th,
observed with the CANICA NIR camera on the 2.1m telescope
at the Observatorio Astrofísico Guillermo Haro, located in Cananea,
Mexico, the LAT team announces that on same day (2010-06-12)
the source was in outburst reaching a flux (E>100MeV) of (0.9+/-0.2) x 10^-6 ph cm^-2 s^-1, more than 10 times the 1FGL catalog flux (Abdo, A. et al 2010, ApJ, 715, 429).
This source was detected for the first time from Fermi in the daily time scale
on 2009-03-22 (Atel #1986) in a high state with a gamma-ray flux (E>100MeV)
of (1.0+/-0.2) x 10^-6 ph cm^-2 s^-1.
