Abstract: In this paper we present results from photometric observations of (596) Scheila during its recent outburst. This one was the first time to observe the main-belt comet or a possible collision of two asteroids at the Skalnaté Pleso Observatory. The main aim of our observations was to determine whether and, if so, how much the rotational period and the amplitude were changed by the outburst or collision with respect to the published results by Warner in 2006.
