We report on the increased activity from the binary system PSR B1259-63 with the Large Area Telescope (LAT), one of the two instruments on board the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. After the initial detection of this source by the LAT over a period of 32 days (Atel # 3085) which happened during the first passage of the pulsar through the equatorial disk of the Be star, the source showed a decrease in flux....
