Supernova 2002hh in NGC 6946.


Abstract (from CDS):

Further to IAUC 7906, W. Li reports the LOTOSS discovery of an apparent supernova on unfiltered KAIT images taken on Oct. 31.1 (mag about 16.5) and Nov. 2.1 UT (mag about 16.3). The new object is located at R.A. = 20h34m44s.29, Decl. = +60o07'19".0 (equinox 2000.0), which is 60".9 west and 114".1 south of the nucleus of NGC 6946. A KAIT image taken on Oct. 26.1 showed nothing at this position (limiting mag about 19.0). NGC 6946 has produced six known supernovae: 1917A, 1939C, 1948B, 1968D, 1969P, and 1980K. Observations of this potentially bright supernova are encouraged.
