We call attention on our recent observation of the Gamma Ray source 1FGL J1033.8+6048 with the CANICA NIR camera on the 2.1m telescope at the Observatorio Astrofísico Guillermo Haro, located in Cananea, Mexico. We found this blazar to be in outburst. It shows fluxes about 2.7 magnitudes brighter than previous NIR photometry listed in the 2MASS catalog of point sources. Our photometric results in the H Band for the date JD2455335.6830, yield a value of H=13.298 +/- 0.05. Our observations were prompted by ATELs #2622 and #2623. They provide further support for the identification of the gamma ray source 1FGL J1033.8+6048 with the optical source SDSS J103351.42+605107.3. Multiwavelength observations would be very valuable.
