The Large Area Telescope (LAT) onboard the Fermi Gamma-ray satellite has observed a gamma-ray flare from a new gamma-ray source. The preliminary best-fit location of the gamma-ray source (R.A.= 207.51 deg, Dec.= -11.68 deg, J2000) has a 95% containment radius of 0.15 deg (statistical errors only) for observations from 20 to 26 November 2011. The source is not present in any Fermi LAT catalogs released up to now and there is no previously reported EGRET gamma-ray detection at this location.
