During 9 July 1995 and 28 April 1996 we carried out J, H, and observations of the X-ray transient and Galactic black hole candidate GRS using the Cassegrain IR Camera on the 5-meter telescope at Mt. Palomar. Between the two observations the infrared intensity increased by approximately one magnitude to one of the highest levels yet seen, again confirming the highly variable nature of the emission. Our second observation was made during a time when the source was being continuously monitored by CGRO (20–100 keV), RXTE (2–12 keV), and the Ryle Telescope (15 GHz), allowing simultaneous multiwavelength spectra covering a very broad energy range.
