Remarks: This is a slow-rising object with a discovery magnitude close to the survey limit, so individual-epoch nondetections are not meaningful. It shows no history of variability in the survey prior to the initial detection. A nearby faint source (the probable host galaxy) catalogued in ZTF and PS1 reference imaging is significantly astrometrically offset.
