I report the discovery of a new bright variable star in the constellation Scorpius. It is most likely star OGLE BUL-SC23 396060 with position (J2000.0): RA 17:57:59.75, DEC -31:38:07.4. Magnitude range is 14.4 (B) - 21.7 (V). It is visible in the possible outburst on two digitized Palomar Sky Survey photographic plates, which were made 60 years ago. This object was registered as a variable star in the AAVSO VSX under the name of Romanov V1 and with UG: variability type.
