In our previous report (ATEL#931) we have suggested that the bright optical transient in Cassiopeia, identified as GSC 3656-1328, can be understood as a gravitational microlensing event of a nearby star (see also ATEL#942). All available photometric data support the finding and a symmetric microlens fit best reproduces the light curve. We continue our spectroscopic and photometric monitoring of GSC 3656-1328.
