Abstract V745 Sco (see ATel 5862, 5865, 5870, 5871, 5874, 5877, 5879, 5881, 5884, 5897) was observed 10 days after the announced optical discovery (R. Stubbings, AAVSO special notice #380), on 2014-02-16 at 00:51:07 UT with NuSTAR for about 25 kiloseconds. The exposure was not continuous and ended at 12:51:07 UT. A luminous hard X-ray source was detected, with a measured flux of (1.68±0.10) x 10(-11) erg/cm(2)/s in the 3-20 keV range.
