Abstract: WZ Sge has shown superoutbursts in 1913, 1946 and 1978. On 2001 July 23 a new outburst was announced, about 10 years `too early'. Target of opportunity satellite observations with Chandra, FUSE, HST and RXTE were performed throughout the outburst. From the ground WZ Sge was monitored by numerous professional and amateur astronomers, in the optical, IR and radio. We give an account of the first exciting results from these multi-wavelength observations.
