The neutron star transient SAX J1750.8-2900, detected in a new outburst by RXTE/PCA on March 15th (ATel #1425), is currently within the field of view of SuperAGILE, which is pointing at the Galactic Center region. The 20-60 keV average flux detected by SuperAGILE during the time period between 2008-03-16 13:00 UT and 2008-03-17 08:00 UT is approximately 80 mCrab. The AGILE monitoring of the same sky region will continue for the next two weeks.
