Observations of stellar flares started with the accidental discovery of a brightening of DH Car by Hertzsprung (1924). Although numerous observations now exist for flare stars; only recently have observations of flares on ordinary, solar-type stars been made (Landini et al. 1986). In this paper we present observations of a flare event in HeI D3 on the G5 dwarf Kappa Cet during routine spectroscopic observations on 24 January 1986.
